BC: Light- the segment of the spectrum of electromagnetic energy that stimulates the eyes and produces visual sensations. In this photo you will notice that the sky ahead is dark and the sky behind is bright. This is due to the light from the sun reflecting out of my mirror. Photo taken on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge in 2010. | f | All photos taken for my museum were taken by artist Rachel Hite :)
FC: Mission Statement The mission of my museum is to allow people to see that the world is a beautiful place to live in. There are many things to see and do and even just the little things in life, like a flower can make you smile. I have taken pictures over the years of things that I think are beautiful and found that this would be the perfect opportunity to share them with people. Some of these pictures were taken in the backyard and none of them look the same. This shows that no matter what today brought you, tomorrow could bring you much more. The nature of the world is endless and fascinating and I find that landscapes are the pictures that should be shown in a museum because that is what is real.
1: Looking Out | figure-ground relationship- the relationship between the primary subject and other parts of the composition | Photo was taken at an Art Gallery in DC
2: ART- Falls into three different themes/types 1.) Nature 2.)Ideology/Religion 3.) Idea of Beauty
3: I chose to use the beauty of the nature in the art of photography. | These photos were taken at my parents house in Broomes Island
5: Subject Matter- what we see or what is literally depicted In the photo to the right, the Tree of Life in Disney World's, Animal Kingdom is the subject matter.
6: Complimentary color- one of a specific pairs of colors that most enhance, one another by virtue of their simultaneous contrast | Colors of Fall
7: Stopped Time- image that captures action in mid-movement by exposing the film very briefly | Using photography a lot of the time stopped time is being used.
8: Radial Balance- balance in which the design elements radiate from a center point | Flowers are a good example of radial balance since the eye follows from the middle point to the petals
9: Cherry Blossom Festival, 2009. Washington DC.
11: These pictures all look alike and there content is similar. However they are all different and all contain different content. For example the photo to the left, the subject matter is the butterfly but the photo also contains the sky, whereas the two photos on this page do not focus on the sky but rather on the butterfly itself. | Content- everything that is in contained in the art | Photos of a butterfly bush in my backyard.
13: Approximate symmetrical balance- the whole of the work has a symmetrical feeling but with slight variations that provide more visual interest than would a mirror image
14: Rhythm- the orderly repetition or progression of the visual elements in a work of art | Regular repetition- the systematic repetition of the visual elements in a work to create rhythm | Taken from the plane above Colorado
15: Pop Art- An art style originating in the 1960s that uses commercial and popular images and themes as its subject matter | Washington Monument, Washington D.C | Las Vegas, Nevada
