photo of the week


This is a photo of a sculpture located in the park between Manhattan bridge and Brooklyn bridge. The shadow that falls in the sculpture makes it more visible and focus in comparison with the background. You can see the shape and movement of the sculture bringing it as the important point in the photo. The bright light of the day helps too. Also I like the light reflection in the water of some of the buildings in the background in Manhattan.

Karl Blossfeldt

I think that Karl Blossfeldt photography concentrates in parts and shapes of what it seems to be like 3dimensional methalic pieces becasue of the highlights and roundness of the figure. On the other hand, the composition he use in this photo turn it to be a two dimensional object because of the front view he used to take the photo. I like the photo becasue it has a lot of movement as others in his collection. I think that the point of taking the photo to just a portion of the object and not the whole one, makes it more interesting. He concentrates in the division of the stem of plants and the movement and life it shows in their shapes .

Manhattan Bridge

I took this photo last monday before class. A view of Manhattan bridge from the Empire Fulton state park next to the bridge. I like the angle I used to take the photo, almost under it. The perspective creates a nice view of the shape of the bridge. the blue sky on the top then changing to a grayish color at the bottom creates a soft gradient. The shadows under the bridge street platform makes contrast with the sky and define very nicely the archs that holds the left column
of the bridge, making it like a cut out.

Koudis Photography
















I like the composition of this photo. I believe it is a smart idea and a very successful one. He use a photo of a man sitting and in the background a photo of the coner of the sidewalk and the street. He looks like a small person in a giant city. I like the way he used the proportion of the subjects.

I belive that a client would like more a composite image because you can play more and have more options to really project the idea you want to sell. I think that in this case a straight photograph can not project what this photo shows, and can be more difficult to get the final idea.

Close Sunset

In my last trip to Dominican Republic, I took this photo in my way back to New York through one of the airplane's window next to me. It was a beautiful sunsent. It is different than looking from the ground, because you feel part of it, you are close and everything you see around the airplane is just the sky. I like the colors, the blue og the day getting darker and the yellowish color of the sun appearing through the clouds. The wing starts to lose details as the night falls. I like the mood of the photo.

Joel Meyerowitz


















In this photo, we can see the a view of the sea from the porch of a house which usually is a nice scene in a regular and sunny day, but in this photo the stormy and foggy weather outside change the mood of the photograph, transforming it in a terror movie scene. It looks like a hurricane is approaching the house, there is not electricity and just a gas lamp is illuminating the scene. He even captured a thunder. I like this photo becasue it is unusual and it looks dramatic.

College Student Photo


Borough Hall train station. As college students, transportation is very important for our sucess in school and more in this city. We use public transportation daily to go to school and back home or to do any homework or project for any class. We basically depend on that because is faster and more convenient. We know that attendance is basic to pass a class and learn new things, and I believe that our success in school can be affected in a negative way without public transportation, like it happened in the last transit strike. I like the structure on the entrance of the train station. Also, I like the side view of the station.

Point of view: College Students

The point of view of college students. Which are their interests. College students notice new technology coming out to the market, for example: computers, cell phones, and others. They use it for study or personal purpose. Also, in their daily life, they use transportation to get in and out of school such as trains and buses. Others use their cars for transportation and many of them like to know about the new cars coming out, the wheels or the music. As students, they are always looking for food, usually fast food because of the time. They also notice clothings, other students or classmates, sports, music, and others.
