For this homework I tried focusing on rhythm and the framing to make my composition more dynamic The main idea is to make the mood if the scene enclosed but has a lot of height. I try to make it also feel a bit more industrial and a bit like in the slums. My main focus is to show more of the environment while placing characters to provide narrative and dynamics on the scene.
Critiques for my Comps
Comp 1 - The flow of the composition seems to be good to me. The elements on the environment helps to lead the reader to where the character/action is. The thing that bugs me on this scene is that the camera is a bit near the subject which eats too much of the focus..
Comp 2- Have a good read, some good graphic design. The subject is a good size and not taking much attention. The only thing I would be adjusting on this scene is the banners to make it less distracting and adjusting some of the values.
Comp 3 - Good read but lacks a good focal point.
Comp 4- Good story telling but the background is a bit too flat and the action is very close to the camera, which is not the intention for my comps.
Comp 5 - Good Framing and has the best story telling from the scenes. The only thing to adjust are the buildings on the sides to make it less symmetrical.
Comp 6 - No interesting point for the scene and its a bit hard to provide a good narrative.
Comp 7 - Low camera provides a very dramatic or imposing presence for the building but the downside is that the character will be a bit too big when placed on the foreground.
Comp 8 - Subject is too close on the camera and the background elements are all on the sides. The foreground elements needs a little bit more polishing or definition to make it effectible .
Comp 9 - It does not have a good 1,2,3 read and the elements are a bit too similar to one another in terms of sizes and depth.
Comp 2 and 5 are the scenes that I will continue to explore since the base is good and it just needs a little bit of adjustments. Comp 3m 4 and 7 are good to continue specially if the elements motioned are adjusted and fixed
