    Potential for photo essay

    Possible first photo for Photo Essay

    This is a photo I am considering using for my Photo Essay. It was taken over Spring Break (if only it were actually that beautiful outside), and it captures something about my grandparents that I can’t really explain. I’ve decided I am going to make all photos in the essay…

    Picture for Photo Essay (maybe?)


    I am considering adding this picture to my final photo essay. I just think the moment that is captured in it (this was in NYC last weekend) is very powerful. You see a street artist posing for an old man who kept taking pictures. Of course, this is done with …

    1. Take a photo with strong contrasts—technical (lighting, coloring), physical (size, distance), conceptual (new and old, present and past).

    2. Take a portrait. Meet my father.
