|This is a combined effort of myself and my husband Chris. Chris has studied art. So we have tried to combine our knowledge to create something different. Inspired by Piet Mondrian, Mark Rothko, and Leonardo Da Vinci. Yes, we set the bar high.
This particular photo is best viewed on a computer. If you sit close, you won't see that much. But if you step away you will notice that it becomes three dimensional.
Art lesson No2 incorporated: The bottom left corner and upper right corner have been matched in color to create a diagonal that draws the eye to follow the picture on a path.
Photography lesson No 1: Another diagonal line is created from the upper left corner to the bottom right corner, to serve the same purpose.
So, we now have a point where both these lines meet. In the middle, which is also why the picture is in square format.
now, Step away from the computer and look at the image (alternatively, angle the phone from one side to the other). Start on the left side and walk towards the right. That is when you will start to notice (i hope) the three dimensions. The picture changes depending on your viewpoint. At first, the bird flies away from you and at the end it flies towards you. That is Rothko and Mondrian. In terms of Da Vinci, If you look at his famous painting 'Mona Lisa' and do the same exercise, start on the left side and walk towards the right, you will notice that her eyes are always looking right at you. You will notice the same happens when walking around this photo. (Not as good as Da Vinci of course).
So there you go. I hope you enjoy it and that you can see what we see when we step away and walk around. If you wonder what happened to the Art lesson No 1...That is simply to step away and get a different viewpoint.|
