Although most consider sports to be played on the field or on some type of court, I took the definition of “sports” to a more artistic level. I specifically looked at body movements and facial muscle expressions through the art of Indian Dance. This picture is specifically one of my favorites. This dance formation portrays the grief that Sita, a character from one of the holy books of the Hindu religion, experiences while she is being interrogated by the 10-headed demon king - Raavan. The girls surrounding her, act as her disciples as she is being tormented. Sita’s hands are in the air in the middle of the circle, as she prays for her rescue from Lord Ram, her husband. I believe this picture was a good capture of this scene. However, I wish I would have gotten more light in the picture. Overall, I found this project to be very engaging!
This picture required me to look from a different perspective. Emotion can be seen through many different lenses. However, I found emotion that was showcased through the art of Indian Dance. This picture not only resembles emotion but also depicts a Hindu deity, specifically Lord Hanuman. Hanuman is often shown in the form of a monkey which is what the dancer attempts to portray in this photograph. I think this picture was captured well. However, I wish I could have gotten a more clearer picture with no disturbances in the background. Overall, I enjoyed this project!
I knew the emotion assignment came at the right time. I knew Mike would procrastinate over the Thanksgiving break and he became quite stressed and frustrated when he actually started working on homework and studying for upcoming finals. His body language and facial expressions really say it all.
This picture was taken during the Thanksgiving while everybody was busy around the gifts and dinner. This kid was really funny and liked to joke with others. he was laughing happily while we asked his questions,and this four-year-old elf knew exactly how to “deal with our jokes”. But at the same time, he was a little shy among all the adults. In this picture, his hided one of his hands behind, indicating his shyness, while the other one showing us the candy, The whole picture stressed a sens of happiness and even a little bit of humor. I preferred to take one of his whole body rather than just his face because i think for this kid, his body movement and his pose also helped to tell his emotion.
My roommate was playing with her puppy and it is impossible to not show any emotion when playin with a puppy. Her emotions hit almost everyone in the spectrum. One minute they were playing and she was content or happy, another then she was laughing, another and she was shocked by the puppy’s actions or even scared if the puppy got too excited and was close to her face, to then being slightly upset and disappointed as seen here. My roommate was playing tug-og-war basically with her puppy and the toy in the pup’s mouth. My roommate then lost her grip on the toy and this is the picture capturing her emotion when she lost the toy. I feel that there are strong features in her face to portray this emotion. I would have liked it it was less profile and I could see more o her face but I didn’t move in time. Most of the straight on pictures also had the puppy in the way to see her entire face.
I like this picture because little kids are always full of emotion. I took this picture right after he got done sliding and I am glad I captured the happiness in his face. So it was a good decisive moment. But kids are difficult to take pictures of because they are always moving. It was hard to snag a picture without motion blur. Also I think the colors in this picture don’t stand out as well because of the lighting. I took this picture on a cloudy day, so I wish their would have been more light in this picture. I just wish the colors would pop more.
This picture was taken on Dec.4, 2013, in a buble tea restuarant on the Loop of St.Louis, MO. In ths picture, Juan Kong was amused by a joke that told by others, she bitted her fist while she was laughing. I really like the colors and the atmosphere of this picture. The color of this photo is bright and colorful, it will leave people a good mood. And also, the atmosphere will make you feel so relax and happy.
