PHOTOGRAPHY Rule of Thirds

Photographer Gary Crossey52 Week Photo Challenge

WEEK ONE ASSIGNMENT

Story: Rule of Thirds

ASSIGNMENT: The rule of thirds is the first compositional rule most photographers learn, but most don’t know why they learn it. The rule of thirds is fantastic for telling a story. Tell a story using the rule of thirds.

PHOTO: The beginning of the year has begun with thick mountain fogs. Most of the animals are staying close to the house. The Rooster got my attention – then his buddies showed up.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY Artistic: Candy

Inspiration this week is candy. Since this is the advanced challenge… you can’t
actually use candy in the scene.

Photography Artist Candy Asheville

Week six photography challenge “Artistic Candy.”

I love to make handmade candy. And, have quite a collection of candy/cookie making baking tools. Unlike, other kitchen tools, the candy tools are unique. Each mold or cutter has a story. Or a special event that they play a role.

PHOTOGRAPHY Hand Study

Photography by Gary Crossey - Hand Study

The photography hand study was created using a scanner. The hand was positioned in the scanner and held still while capturing. During the process, the model had to hold her hand completely still. The process created a visual tension that I was after. I experimented with a similar process using a camera and sheet of glass – None of the pressure appeared when the hand was held for a few seconds as it did when held for a few minutes. The effect of the glass against the fingertips really reinforces that sense of pressure and force pushing down.  To the effect to almost remove the imprint of the fingerprint.

Checker

I am building a theme in the simple to follow naming of this collection of photography. With Checkered Floor, I photographed a public building in the center of Belfast. As a child, I stood outside this building a million times. Embarking on a bus to any direction of Belfast.

As an adult, I entered the building and discover Checkered Floors. After talking with my family and friends – none of them had ever gone inside the building. But, in their mind, they all had an idea of what they expected to see. It was not checkered floors. I then made “Checker” with fragments of different photos – each representing might think of the ground when they know it is just a checkered floor.
