Reading Dreams

C is absorbed by her books (though she has not yet learned to read). The stories she makes up about the books are fantastical and amazing. What a delight the unfettered creativity of youth can be!

Assignment

It's time to focus... on a single point. Let's clarify: this does not need to be "literal" focus (where one thing is in focus and the rest of the image, blurry) and it doesn't really need to be a POINT either! Rather, we just want you to ask yourself: Where do I want my viewer to look? In general, you want to LEAD your viewer into ONE part of the frame, which usually is your main subject. You can achieve this with a shallow depth-of-field focus, obviously, like the eyes of the subject in a portrait, or you can achieve this with something like color: a bright road-sign that draws the viewer's eye directly to it. Another example of color could be a yellow flower amidst a sea of blue flowers, if such a thing exists (ahem-photoshop). You can also achieve this "focal point" by playing with light. Think of a sliver of natural light pouring into a window and highlighting a person's face, or object, among very deep shadows elsewhere in the frame. It's all about grabbing the viewer's attention and while this can be subjective at times, the challenge for this week is to make it as "obvious" as possible.
