You will analyze and critique a photograph taken by your partner, evaluating whether the use of graphic elements (lines and shapes) is effective in conveying meaning.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a critique of your partner’s photograph, specifically focusing on graphic and photographic elements. Explain how the graphic elements contribute to making the photograph dynamic or static. Analyze the extent that the graphic elements direct the viewer to the significant content of the photograph. Explain how the most important graphic elements relate to each other within the picture frame. Considering the photograph’s dominant graphic elements, to what extent would you say these elements contributed to the telling of a subjective or objective story? (Approximately 500 words).
