Exercise 103 – Alliah Maneclang

The man in the picture is a professional rock climber named Alex Hannold who climbs America's biggest cliffs that made him one of the recognized climbers in the world. This picture shows one of his greatest accomplishment for breaking the speed record in climbing El Capitan in Yosemite for under two hours.

One of the technique that is used is "telling a story", Hannold can be seen looking down giving the impression that he is high up from the ground. The photographer also uses rule of thirds to emphasize Hannold while showing the breathtaking background. Lastly, the image has a strong diagonal element as it captures the attention of the viewers and directs the eye to Hannold.

  1. I’ve watched a documentary about Alex Hannold and its one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen. This is an incredible photo of him and how it show us how his skills as a rock climbing is crazy, also he’s on a whole different level than anyone else when it comes to climbing.

  2. I have a few friends who are climbers who could probably appreciate this a lot more than me but the photo is gorgeous. Props to all of the climbers out there who do things like this, not only does it take an intense amount of practice but the act of it alone is terrifying. I would be interested in finding out how he got that shot.
