Line and Space as Elements of Art

These two important elements are discussed this week in Module 5. "Lines are not only those we draw with pens and pencils. In art they can be positions of bodies, objects or images and even a glance seen in someone’s eyes. The feeling of space in a drawing or painting is always an illusion. Artists combine the use of light and dark value with other techniques. Some of these are: simple overlapping, ladder perspective, linear perspective, and atmospheric perspective."

DISC PHOTO INSTRUCT MODULE 5

Shape and Repetition

MAKE SURE YOU ARE INCLUDING ALL PARTS WHEN YOU POST YOUR IMAGES. YOU SHOULD BE TELLING ABOUT YOUR CAMERA, LIGHTING, ETC AND ALSO ANSWERING THE CRITIQUE QUESTIONS WHEN YOU POST YOUR IMAGES.


Step 1. Planning: While planning your shots, you might see an object that has a particularly interesting shape. What is it about that object that draws your eye? Try moving it or shooting it from a different angle. Use shapes that relate to one another to draw your viewer’s attention to certain aspects of your subject that you want to emphasize. In this way, you are able to bring your personal vision to your photographs.

In this planning step, it might be helpful to ask yourself these questions:

  • What will my subject matter be?
  • Where will I shoot? Is this a place I can easily access and move around (physically) with ease? Is there sufficient lighting, or will I need to bring a light source?
  • What kind of subjects (that I can easily find) use shape and repetition?

Review: How to post photos

Each time you add an image to the class discussion, you will need to title your discussion entry and label each image with the following information:

  • Type of camera used
  • Lighting details (example: “I shot this image outside in natural light, and it was overcast/sunny/raining.”)
  • Location of image
  • Names of people in the image
  • How you manipulated the image using photo-editing software (if applicable)

Critique

After you have uploaded your photos to the blog, you will need to critique your work, as well as the work of at least one of your peers. Respond to all of the critique writing prompts below (for your self-critique AND peer critiques) in the Module Five Create Discussion One. Be sure to use at least two vocabulary words from Module Five in your critique responses.
