My World Transformed by a Frame

Cameras, Exposure, and Photography

Michigan State University

Assignment II
Your World Transformed by the Frame

Assignment Instructions
Transform a scene that is an ordinary, everyday, part of your life experience to create a new and exciting interpretation from one or more of the following effects of the FRAME:
a new content resulting from unexpected connections between two or more things that are isolated from the space around them and now related because they are enclosed by the Frame;
a change in the normal meaning of some thing or some person because that element is abruptly cut by the edge of the Frame in an unusual manner;
a compositional balance (such as symmetry or asymmetry) or design element (such as pattern or negative space) that is emphasized because of the Frame;
a change in content emphasis in the scene that results from using a Vertical Frame rather than a Horizontal Frame, or vice versa.
Choose an ISO that is appropriate for the light level so that you can use a shutter speed of at least 1/60 second to avoid motion blur.
Use "Program" exposure. 
 Upload two image files just as the camera recorded them, without any Photoshop or App manipulation:
the first a simple view of the general scene, titled "SCENE";
and, the second a photograph that creates a new set of relationships between elements in the scene, or creates a compositional clarity, or fragments elements in unusual ways by cutting them with the edge of the picture, or in which Verticality is essential to new content, or creates an abstract aspect, or a bit of all of those elements, entitled "FRAME".
Finally, upload a brief statement in which you describe two things:
The scene I chose was the gazebo in my yard. My camera is a Canon G11, These images are straight from the camera resized . The FRAME shot I chose was looking through the metal frame of the gazebo to the weeds.  Have a lot of weeding to do!!! Shots  were done both in RAW and JPEG in P mode,
