Weekly Photo Challenge: From Every Angle_Different Image Sizes and Composition

August 29, 2015

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “From Every Angle.”

The challenge reminds me of a shot list or storyboard, a tool that aids us in film making. We normally write the description such as Close Up, Close Shot, Mid Shot, Mid Long Shot, Full Shot, Extreme Close Up or Extreme Long Shot; Can be Low angle, Top angle, Eye level, Worm’s Eye view, etc. We call them Image sizes. The sculpture below if I remember it correctly was inspired or after a painting by impressionist painter Pierre Auguste Renoir or Claude Monet. In fact, the light and shadows created by the sun peeking through the leaves of the trees give the same impressionistic effect that must have inspired those painters.  Study the background of the first photo. The people in the background are not sculptures anymore.


Over the Shoulder, Close Shot


Mid Shot


Wide Shot, Subject in Mid Long Shot. Take note of the guy behind, the waiter.


We can intercut this shot of the fellow, then go back to the third photo. What could he be thinking?
