Merged Subjects:
(1) (2)

The scene in image (1) is my brother in a wheel chair with a light green-sour apple covering his face. This image is an
example of merging two subjects because the apple replaces the handicap's head. I used color to draw the viewer's
attention first to the apple with its bright attractive color. The scene in image (2) is my finger covering a far off light
bulb on the ceiling. This is an example of merging subjects because it appears as if there is a bright light emanating
fromthe tip of my finger. I used lines to draw attention to the bright light, directed by a slanted finger in which the viewer's
follow.


Small subject ---> Larger than actual size:

The scene in image (1) is a penny posted closer to the camera while a larger sized apple is placed far off in the distance
making it appear as if the penny is the same size as the apple. I used the technique of color. The bright green sour-apple
attracts the viewers attention which compares it to the foregrounding penny. Since the apple is out of focus, color effectively
catches the viewer's eye, while not distracting them from the main subject. The scene in image (2) is a tiny tangerine "cutie"
place closer to the camera while a larger sized world globe is posted for off in the distance, making it appear as if the "cutie"
is the same size as the globe. I used tone to make the globe stand out in the dark background. The tone of the globe also
is similar to the surrounding, making it even easier to spot

Large subject ---> Smaller than actual size

The scene in image (1) is my hand grabbing on to the tv by making the screen seem smaller by being farther away. I used tone and color to emphasize the subject in the
middle, ultimately drawing the viewer's attention to the mini-screen like tv held by my fingertips. The scene in image (2) js my hand grabbing on the my brother in his wheelchair.
My fingertips are closer to the lens than Dave is, making it appear as if I could actually grab on to him.


Defy Gravity

The scene in image (1) is a cat walking done the side of a stairs, "defying gravity". I used to dark-shaded tone colored cat to catch the viewer's
eye. The scene in image (2) is a pyramid made from plastic coffer-cups. The cups are defying gravity since they are posted on the side of the wall,
completely immobile. I used tones to highlight the cups in contrast with the dark background behind them. This is so the viewer will have
an easier time finding the sideways cups.
