Feedback from my tutor for my TAOP Assignment 2.
10 pictures of foodstuff arranged to match a pre-defined set of compositional design elements. It was a fun exercise that I learnt a lot from.
In my learning log for TAOP exercise 2-9 I look at repetition, patterns and rhythms in pictures, and manages to get myself somewhat confused.
In this exercise, I investigated “real” and “implied” triangles as a compositional device.
Exercise 2.7 is about implied lines – lines that aren’t really visible lines in the picture, but which the brain recognises as such. The typical examples are eye-lines, lines “made up of” points, and movement-lines.
Finding curves in the City proved to be more of a challenge than finding diagonals, and in the end I had to raid the archives for a good example of natural curves. Here are four images using curves to emphasize movement and direction. TAOP exercixe 2.6
Lane markings on Westminster Bridge, fairy-light covered trees, a Christmas Market stall and a building with a windmill on top demonstrates strong diagonal lines in these notes for TAOP exercise 2.5
A walk around town, searching for vertical and horizontal lines resulted in solely man-made structures.
An exercise about pictures where the subject is a single point or two individual points. A group of local cows kindly modelled for me.
