Exercise 19 – A single figure small

In this first exercise leading up to assignment 4, we are asked to take a photo (the notes do not mention how many images)  of a single figure which is in the image, but at first may be so obvious to the eye. Such a shot maybe inside church or such a place that shows the size of the building or area.

For this first of two images showing a person (or people) in a large space I have taken this image from a building in Glasgow called The Kremlin. I am standing at the top of the stairs looking down and the persecutive make the the viewer first look around the wooden banister or handrail, then as the eye searches the rest of the image we fall down to almost dead centre at the two figures walking across the centre floor. This is very subtle but although the figures are very small they could almost become the focal point of the image altogether.

This second image again in the Kremlin building in Glasgow, we can see the main focal point is the building with leading stairs, and the large lion head which is almost the size of a person. As we look around the image the eye is drawn to the high colour red, which then turns out to be  a person looking at something with her back towards the camera. Although very small in relative size to the overall image and lion head, the future is still very noticeable due to the colour and just being offset slightly on the rule of thirds.
