Jacques-Henri Lartigue

Yeah, he is beast.
His name is Jacques-Henri Lartigue.
He was born June 13, 1894 in Courbevoie, France. He died September 12, 1986.
For those failing math he was 92 when he died.
He started taking pictures before his wee little head was bigger then the camera (6).
He painted and did photography.

In my opinion this is my favorite first photo. I like the angle a lot. And her gesture is nice :] Like 'yeahh.' The bookshelf adds color and makes the picture more "complex" This is generally just a nice picture :D

This picture is my least favorite. I've never been a big fan of close ups, but as far as close ups get I'd say its a pretty good picture :]

Avoiding Mergers

If any colors are blended in the color is makes the subject seem to continue and might disporption it.


Framing adds more depth to the picture.


Balance makes the picture feel like its right side up, or not sideways, relaxes the picture.


Lines lead the vision to the subject.

Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds allows you to see all the surroundings. It adds a nice effect to the picture, adds more details.


Simplicity helps the viewers go straight to the subject, there aren't other things in the picture distracting them.

1. The action in this photo is the ferris wheel spinning, there is a blur.

2. Everything seems to be out of focus but the ferris wheel is mostly focused.

3. In some places it looks alittle warped, like at the edge of the ferris wheel, but other than that, no.

1. There is a person in the picture, he is blurred and creepy looking.
2. The thing that most in focus in the picture is the guy.
3. The picture is alittle warped. The wall is weird and everything looks weird.
