In photography, it is not always a simple matter of centering the subject in the frame and taking the shot. Two photographers, when presented with the same scene, could end up with two very different photographs. These changes may be based on what they choose to leave in the frame, what they leave out, or the angle they use. As a result, the two photographs could convey very different meanings. In this Assignment, you will take a photograph, demonstrate elements of framing in that photograph, and then describe its meaning.
To prepare for this Assignment:
Review Chapter 1 in The Photographer’s Eye.
Compose a photograph that reflects the following framing elements:
Type of frame
Orientation of the photograph
Filling the frame
Placement of the subject of the photograph in relationship to the space surrounding it
Division of the frame
Horizon line
Write a 1- to 2-paragraph description of how you used elements of framing in the composition of your photograph. Assess how effective you were at achieving your photographic goal. Describe what you might do differently in future photographs. Support your assertions by making at least two references to your course readings.

This session we see the progression of Art and symbolism moving to more complex materials. The use of architecture, mosaics, icons, metal work stained glass and manuscripts (the beginning of the written word) start to convey the tenets of the Christian faith to a non-literate society.
Review the Life of Christ as portrayed in art discussed in Chapter 4. Choose one event and find an art piece that represents the episode. This work of art should be from the Middle Ages. This image does not count as one of the academic source references that are also required. Insert the image into your paper and include an APA citation in your reference section of your paper as to where you found it. You may use the following resource to assist you with writing an APA citation for a work of art or image:
Harris, J. (2018, July 6). How do I cite an image in APA style [Online message board]? Shapiro library. Retrieved from http://libanswers.snhu.edu/faq/8629

Topics cover periods that range from Christian to Romanesque and Gothic art that leads into the Renaissance art movement.
This session Kleiner’s text will highlight the emergence of architecture and other materials and the use of art in communicating the Christian faith, juxtaposing the use of art and the emerging Islamic world’s use of art during this time period.
What is distinctive about Medieval Art?
What materials or mediums were being discovered and used at this time?
What is the emerging importance of architecture during this time period?
What was the importance of iconographic symbols in portraying a worldview?
One reference should be: Holy Bible, New International Version. (2011). Zondervan. (Original work published 1973)

The Chinese have a theory that you pass through boredom into fascination and I think it’s true. I would never choose a subject for what it means to me or what I think about it. You’ve just got to choose a subject, and what you feel about it, what it means, begins to unfold if you just plain choose a subject and do it enough.
––Diane Arbus
Diane Arbus was a highly original photographer who has greatly influenced the course of contemporary photography. In her Photography: A Cultural History (2002), Mary Warner Marien writes:
Arbus turned normalcy on its head, making the ordinary bizarre and naturalizing the unusual. In her photographs of people, many of them made while she roamed the streets of New York, clothes and cosmetics are futile efforts to camouflage psychic emptiness or damage. When Arbus photographed children, she revealed them as little versions of bad-tempered, mean-spirited adults. […] On the other hand, her photographs of people at the margins of society, such as female impersonators, show them to be more virtuous for having unmasked their subjective inclinations. For Arbus, marginal people were symbols for her own psychological fragility and trauma (p. 352).
The thematic power of Arbus’s work is based on the masterful composition of her subject matter, balancing key elements within a square frame format, which is uniquely identified with her mature style.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review Chapter 4 in your course text, The Photographer’s Eye.
Review Diane Arbus’s photograph, Child with Toy Hand Grenade, 1962.
Review the websites from this week’s Learning Resources for more inspiration and examples of photographs.
Consider the following questions regarding the Arbus photograph:
How does the use of a square frame impact the balance of the photograph?
What elements contribute to the balance of the photograph presented here? Would you say this is a balanced photograph? Explain your response.
Does this composition draw your eyes more to the center of the frame or more to the edges? Give evidence for your response.
How does the photograph demonstrate contrast, tension, rhythm, and/or depth?
How does the subject of the photograph relate to the background?
How is perspective created in the photograph?
Is the photograph more weighted toward information or emotion? Explain your response.
While considering the questions above, compare the assigned photograph with Arbus’s 1967 photograph, Identical Twins, Roselle, N.J., 1967. Explain how these photographs differ and how they are similar.
There are typically a lot of submissions where people tell me that a compositional element or concept is included in their photos but not explaining how or why it’s been incorporated.
As you begin to compose your discussion posts and work on assignments, I want you to use a “Where-How-Why” approach to crafting your explanations for your photos. Tell me WHERE the compositional element or concept is in the image, tell me HOW you’ve incorporated it into the shot, and tell me WHY you made that choice.

(was the work well accepted or not? explain why/why not)
Describe, evaluate and critically discuss the artwork you are looking at in terms of the basic components of art (subject, form and content). How does the artwork achieve each component.
Describe, evaluate and critically discuss the artwork you are looking at in terms of basic elements of art. Be sure to include a minimum of 3 terms in your analysis of the artwork. (don’t just list the terms, use the terms to describe the artwork)
Describe, evaluate and critically discuss the artwork you are looking at in terms of the principles of design. Be sure to include a minimum of 3 terms in your analysis of the artwork. (don’t just list the terms, use the terms to describe the artwork)

**You should get your instructor’s approval on your thesis before you can begin writing the paper (highly recommended)
Thesis examples: refer to Getting Started Module: Writing Protocol for Fine Art tab to help you with your thesis. Below are concepts of a thesis but not a correct format for a thesis sentence. Your goal is to find a concept for the two movements that you want to discuss and then formulate that idea into a complete sentence to include as your last sentence in your introduction paragraph. I highly recommend a focal point for the paper, a great example is (C+D) below discussing the political elements in each of those artists works and movements. (C) the focus is how Pop
