Alexander Vavra – Photo Assignment #3


The characteristics I enjoy most about this photo are the documentation, layering, and rule of thirds. I believe the photo accurately documents the daily “march to class” by students – the majority walk, while some drive, and a few ride bike. The layering helps document the students activity, for it shows some students walking towards the campus and others in the background away. Finally, the photo followed the rule of thirds. The guy on the bike is part of the vertical third on the right, while the group of students on the left are a part of that vertical third. Then, the female student in the dominant foreground is in the bottom horizontal third.

The aspects of the photo I think could be improved to have just a little bit more would be mood. I believe the photo slightly portrays the mood of monotony. I say slightly portrays because I come to the assumption of monotony since as a student I take the same route to my classes everyday with little variation. I also think the photo could benefit from a better use of color.

    as they might say in “office space,” I’m going to have to agree to disagree with you on agreement. This is a killer frame.
