Ground Level Critique
1. The photo is of magazines and Shakespeare’s books stacked up on the floor with a plant at the very top of the books inside a white pot and beside it a vintage circular lunch box from the Beatles with the colors red, yellow, blue, green and white.
2. It had a great depth of field showing the plain wall clearly. Some rules of composition were that there was an even amount of objects on both sides with similar colors as each other. The lighting was very nice and nice and calm; as if it was inside, not at all over exposed or under exposed.
3. I think the photo suggests that the past should not be forgotten because everything in this photo is old school, the books that Shakespeare wrote, the Beatles lunchbox and all the magazines. I think I would say that the story was of a high school girl who has OCD set her books on the floor after a long day at school and that she loved how everything looked so she wanted to capture the moment to see who else would agree.
4. The things that make this photo successful are the balanced subjects, the vibrant color, the changing shapes, and the plain background. The uniqueness of the photo really stands out to me.
