Jordan Lehrer – Exercise 103

This picture of the tidewater glaciers in Alaska is a well-taken picture because it uses a couple of composition techniques. Some of the techniques used in this photo are patterns of the glacier ridgeline and also the pattern is being broken up by the bird and also the mountains in the back. They are using the rule of thirds lining up the ridge of the glacier 1/3 down from the top of the photo. Lastly, they are using overlapping layers with the water in front, the glacier, the mountains off to the side, and finally the mountains in the back. They used a low shutter speed to capture the ripples in the water and the bird flying as well as a low aperture to focus the camera on the whole landscape. All these techniques work together to make this photo stunning and pleasing to look at.
