*Project Shapes*

*For this exercise i am to produce six photographs split up into two sets of triangular compositions. One set using ‘real’ triangles, the other making ‘implied’ triangles. *

*Distinguish between ‘real and ‘implied’ triangles. ‘Real’ triangle, meaning those with clear visible edges. ‘Implied’ triangle, meaning three (or sometimes even two) prominent points in the frame which imply a triangle shape (the brain will naturally create a shape by connecting the ‘lines’ created by the prominent points in the frame) *

*Exercise – Real and implied triangles*

*Real*

*Find a subject which is itself triangular (it can be a detail of something larger)**Make a triangle by perspective, converging towards the top of the frame**Make an invented triangle, also by perspective, converging towards the bottom of the frame*

*This image is my example of a subject which in itself is triangular.*

*This is my example of a triangle converging towards the top of the frame.*

*This is my example of a triangle converging towards the bottom of the frame.*

*Both my examples of triangles converging towards the top and bottom of the frames are not in themselves real triangles, but triangles that i have created by the way the camera is angled. *

*Implied*

*Make a still-life arrangement of five or six objects to produce a triangle with the apex at the top**Make a still life-life arrangement as above, but so that the triangle is inverted, with the apex at the bottom**Arrange three people in a group picture in such a way that either their faces or the lines of their bodies makes a triangle*

*Above are my examples of ‘implied triangles’ with the apex at the top and bottom of the frame.*

* Here is my example of an implied triangle by arrangement of people in the shot. The eye creates the triangle by the lines of the bodies, subconsciously. *
