AP Photo Assignment #2

Digital Journal:

Visit the following websites and bookmark for future reference:

Part 1:
Just as a composer uses all the instruments in a symphony to create a stirring piece of music, you should compose each picture so that its parts work together to create a work of beauty. Each item in a picture has an effect on the whole, so don’t just point and shoot. Take a little time to compose each picture into the masterpiece that it has the potential to be. Remember that you are trying to develop mastery in concept composition as well as in technique.
Visit the following sites and make notes in your Digital Journal (named "_dj1")about each topic. Include an image that you find online to illustrate what you are talking about.  Click the links below:

Shooting vertical or horizontal

Choosing a main point of interest


Adjusting your angle of view
