To prepare for this Discussion:
Review Chapters 2 and 3 in your course text, The Photographer’s Eye.
Review Diane Arbus’s photograph, Child with Toy Hand Grenade, 1962.
Review the websites from this week’s Learning Resources for more inspiration and examples of photographs.
Consider the following questions regarding the Arbus photograph:
How does the use of a square frame impact the balance of the photograph?
What elements contribute to the balance of the photograph presented here? Would you say this is a balanced photograph? Explain your response.
Does this composition draw your eyes more to the center of the frame or more to the edges? Give evidence for your response.
How does the photograph demonstrate contrast, tension, rhythm, and/or depth?
How does the subject of the photograph relate to the background?
How is perspective created in the photograph?
Is the photograph more weighted toward information or emotion? Explain your response.
While considering the questions above, compare the assigned photograph with Arbus’s 1967 photograph, Identical Twins, Roselle, N.J., 1967. Explain how these photographs differ and how they are similar.
With these thoughts in mind:
By Day 3
