Leading Lines

In the first image I used leading lines in the floor and on the chair to get the focus to be directed at the bird. I accomplished this by positioning my phone on the floor and taking the picture from a low angle. I used a different approach on the second picture. I took the picture with the leading lines that were the corners of the walls that pointed towards the door and the balloon. My favorite picture is the second one because you can clearly tell what the focus point is.

Rule of Thirds

For each image I lined up my dogs' heads where the top right intersection of the lines would be in each image and took the picture. I didn't actually use a grid to get it exact, because I wanted each image to be at different angles and distances and I wanted each image to differ slightly from the others. I thought that each image came out pretty well but I was happiest with the third one. My dog's body is positioned exactly on one of the grid lines.

Point of View

 I chose to photograph this small wooden horse that is in my living room because it is very colorful and there are many different parts that I could take pictures of. I positioned it against a plain wall in order to have a solid background in all of my photos. I chose to keep these three images because they all showed the same part of the horse at different angles, so they were easier to compare. I used flash to show how bright and varied the colors are.
