Following on from last weeks session, we used a series of images of photographs to analyse composition. The set of 17 square format images were an ideal resource to study static & dynamic composition.
The images were taken from the catologue of photographer, Howard Halsall who recently had the original work on show in the Fylde Gallery, Booths Lytham.
1. by making thumbnail sketches, show the lines and shapes that create the structure of the images
2. use a similar process to analyse an image of a Dutch Masters' painting.
The excellent results follow.
