Pic of the Week By Gabrielle Vincent The story behind 📸 :⁠ During this lesson, students shoot both your typical, wide-angle, "postcard-style" photos of a specific place and return each week throughout the whole course. ⁠ ⁠ Additionally, they are also asked to spend some time exploring🔍 and scouting the area, without necessarily taking any photos right away, in order to learn to pay attention to interesting details that can tell us more about a place, as well as to take notice of their own emotional response to the location and what they see there. ⁠ ⁠ This way, they are able to bring a unique👌🏻 take on the location to their photos📷, which is exactly what Gabbie accomplished in this particular image. ⁠ ⁠ Gabbie noticed the reflection in this puddle and tied everything together by also making great use of lines in this composition, which is the final part of the assignment--to use repeating lines to emphasize a certain feeling or idea that relates to the place they are photographing. ⁠ ⁠ In this case, her use of vertical lines is a great way to bring out the height and scale of the pillars of the George Washington Bridge🌉.⁠
