This is a multi themed contest were it will test your observation skills but also your skills in dealing with composition, hopefully improve it.
I myself wont be entering this but from all the bad words from cameron i decided to at least set you all going.Composition : Geometric StudiesWhat is this contest about you ask?
In this contest you will be studying your shots before you actually snap the photo, looking through the view finder and thinking, am i sticking to the rule of thirds or any other technical composition? does this work as a photograph? what could i do to improve it?.
In order to study the composition you need to be focused on the subject that your photographing so i did the honours of picking it for you! (How kind of me?) I have chosen geometric shapes so use it creatively.What could i do with geometric shapes you may ask?
Take a look around your room what do you see? You see shapes all over, the computer screen your looking at is a square, your mouse is almost a square, the room itself is a cuboidy shape. Windows are square, lightfittings might be circular. Basically use your creative side of the mind and break down objects into an abstract form rather than what you visualize them as and focus on that.
You may even choose to use these shapes creatively and frame other objects within them by using composition. Its your contest you bend the rules What will you benefit from this?
Hopefully this will give you a better understanding of the world around you giving you a better insight into how things work. You will start to see objects in their geometric forms rather than the object you actually see and this will also benefit when modeling in 3d.
By studying the composition you will start to implement this into 3d, looking at your scenes and thinking, could this really work? Studying composition helps alot in everything
