I know my level of expertise in taking an image: average and below. Hence, before I start taking pictures, I will do some research and image references to understand how a good picture should look like. With the image references, I can also adopt the style of it.
When I thought of taking picture with my book, the few places that I thought of was library, my bedroom and when I am travelling. Hence, I went on to research on the types of photograph that can be taken at those places.
In this image, it shows a mid shot of the lady find books in the library. Her expression shows that she is focus on finding the books that she wants. There’s a depth in the image to focus on the lady and the foreground of the bookshelf. The colour and tonal are dull, brownish with less lighting to show that the library is old and vintage.
This image dipects a wonderland of books. The colourful cover books contrasting with each other and pages makes it look like its flipping by the wind. Another thing that gives the feeling of a wonderland is the hard cover books. Normally the hard cover books are used in movie like Harry Potter. The way the character is placed in the middle of the image looks like she is being absorbed in the world of books.
In this image, the photographer uses rule of third and place the subject on it. The light rays coming in from the window, give a direction to focus on the subject.
In this image, it shows the mood of the setting – comfortable and relaxing. The way the lady position herself on the bed will reading, shows that she is into reading and is conformable in her position. There is depth in this image, as the background is dark and blurry which allow the foreground and the subject to be the focal point.
What I like about this image is how the lighting is used to focus on the object, which the the girl and her book.
I like the compositing of this image, and how the lighting shines of the person reading. However, I feel like it is lacking of feeling, as the person face is off the image from. It would be better if the image were to have her face to show how she feels while reading or how she interact with the book.
This image uses rule of third to place the subject with is the person. With the use light coming from the window, it shows a silhouette of a lady reading. Just with a small gesture of her fingers, I am able to guess that she is engross in reading the book.
In conclusion, I would like my image to be taking in the library. As I want my image to look calm, peaceful and relaxing. And the way I should interact with the book is that I am engross and focus in reading the book.
