Color-includes the use of primary colors to create secondary colors. By combining primary and secondary colors tertiary colors are created. Color schemes include- Analogous Complementary Monochromatic Split Complements The Elements of Art Slide 3 Line- movement, direction, stable, unstable Shape- organic/natural, man made Value- high key, low key, normal Texture- actual, implied (Space)- deep/shallow (Shape)- positive and negative Slide 4 What type of shapes are used in the image above? To the right? Objects below? Do you see any texture? Can you describe it? Which picture seems to show the deepest space? Why? What is the positive shape? The tree or the field? Slide 5 What elements of art are present in this photograph? Slide 6 Warm Cool Complementary Split Complement Analogous Monochromatic Slide 7 What color scheme or color set is dominant? What value key would this be considered? Is it predominately light or dark? What type of shapes do you see? Slide 8 Harmony Variety Balance Proportion Dominance Movement Economy How has harmony been used to this point in this presentation? Harmony: involves repetition and rhythm Slide 9 Balance: the visual weight and appearance of a composition/design Radial Balance radiates from a central point Slide 10 Informal Balance: more visual weight on one side of a central axis and yet the image feels balanced Slide 11 Symmetrical: identical on both sides of a central axis-mirror effect Slide 12 Formal or approximate symmetry: visual weight appears to be equally distributed but is not identical on either side of a central axis Slide 13 Scale-in proportion to human figure Slide 14 Variety: differences achieved by opposing, contrasting, changing, elaborating, or diversifying elements in a composition. Do you see different values, textures and patterns here? Does the light values seem in proportion to the darker values? Does this image appear visually pleasing? Does any part seem to over power another? Does all the elements seem in proportion to each other? Proportion: is the comparative relationship between the parts of a whole or units to size. Slide 15 Movement: the principle that directs eye travel by visual pathways in a work of art. Slide 16 Economy: the distillation of the image to the basic essentials for clarity of presentation. Slide 17 Dominance: the principle of art in which certain elements assume more importance than others in the same design. Some features are emphasized and others are subordinated. Slide 18 What type of balance is this? Why? What principle of design is very important to this piece? What elements of art are present? Is this high key, low key, or average? Slide 19 Slide 20 At your table discuss and determine the elements and principles that are used in this image. Is it high key, low key or average? Each side of the room will discuss one image. Slide 21 As part of your bracketing assignment search out as many of the elements and principles as you can find as you shoot your film and determine exposures. You must shoot at least one roll of film but if you so choose you may shoot more. Make sure at least one of your rolls is lford HP5 400 ISO. </p>
