Compositional Examples in Photography

William Eggleston (American, b. 1939). Huntsville, Alabama, 1978. What is the STORY that is happening in this photograph? Let’s make up a story about this guy. http://collection.mam.org/vmedia/tms768/r_m1991_198.jpg

  • Of the images you collected YESTERDAY, what do you think the photographers from National Geographic were trying to explain to the readers that looked at and read about the photograph? What is a STORY that you could make up about the guy in the picture above? Interpretation?

Of all the images you have collected, and all the work you have EVER CREATED, what type of composition do you feel that you have used the most? Why has this been your approach?
