Embryo

Post  CarmelPwnzN00bz on Mon May 16, 2011 5:34 pm



This is a photo of plants growing in to soil. The focus is primarily on the root of the plant. An embryo symbolizes growth to me, so photographing the roots of a plant seemed fitting. The roots remind me of an umbilical cord, thus reinforcing the idea of a fetus or embryo. I think that the photo would be stronger if there were a seed in it or if the plants(above the roots) were more in focus. I do like that you can see both: the plant and the roots they grew from--you see what's beneath the surface.

This is a photo of a strange looking weed that is growing in between the cracks in the sement. I see the embryo being hidden beneath the little piles of sand that the stringy weed is growing out of. even though you can't really see the roots or beneath the earth where the plant originated, the colorful little buds at each end of the weed reminds me of a little embryo, almost like the blant is in reverse. I think this picture could have been stronger if there was a root of some sort showing in this picture to actually show where the plant came from. still i like this picture i think it has interesting colors and textures.

This is a photo of egg yolks in a bowl. The photo has an overall tint of yellow and has many circular shapes in it.
The circles in the photo all seem to lead to the perfectly round egg yolk and draw your eye to it. The monotony and soft edges have a calm effect on the photo.
The photo has no deeper meaning. It's eggs in a bowl. However, I like the aesthetics of the photo overall.

I feel like this is a really good photo. The part of the picture that should be in focus is in focus and the rest it blurred. All the colors go well together, making the picture atheistically pleasing. I feel that the photo does well to represent "embryo" because a pine cone is full of little seeds/embryos, and when it opens it releases them all.

The photo is a picture of an egg yolk and egg white on the sidewalk. You can see the egg shell in the background. The focus is right below the egg yolk, within the egg white. This photo has plenty of textures, and the lighting is quite dark. This picture captures what stage is before the chicken embryo.

I feel like these are very strong pictures. I love the color usage and tones, and I think that each photo focuses in on the object of inspiration at first on the picture with the bird I had alot of exposure but then brought some of the levels down and that really helped to make this a better picture then it was before.

This is a picture of a marble covered in food coloring, it's not real blood. But it's supposed to represent it. The colors in the picture are supposed to pop out at you and gte you to look at the picture. There is also part of a knife in the frame, both the knife and the bloody image make you think of an autopsy or a morgue. The way the food coloring defines the lines in my hand make the picture look more detailed. I feel this is a very good picture where the message is portrayed very clearly.

seed


embryo of the seed


The bottom picture is the embryo
Its interesting how the top picture has no glare, but the the other picture does. I don't now how that happened.
However, I do like the color of the background I chose. I find interesting how the inside of the seed has seeds inside it too.

The picture is of a young man "eating" a paper fetus. The photograph is in black and white in order to give it a more dramatic, solemn feel. The lighting adds to the dramatic feel of the photograph, the lad's features being only somewhat illuminated. The image can be interpreted in a variety of ways, the most obvious of which being an act of cannibalism. Overall, I feel as though the image was a successful portrayal of the topic.

This kitty was once an embryo.
This is a photo of an extremely young kitten with a womens legs in the background. The Kitten is in the foreground in order to give it emphasis. To me this photo represents the huge difference of age between the newly born cat and the women in the background. This makes it a strong photo with meaning.

This picture,is indeed,a last minute entry..so. This is a close-up of a white rose i had in my yard. It had just opened up about a week and a half earlier,therefore still 'growing' as an embryonic individual being would...Considering I took the picture in the daylight,it seems as though it was taken at night which i like because the petals stand out more than they would in direct sunlight.

These plants are sprouting from embryos that are planted underground.
Describe: In this picture there are many bright green plants sprouting up. Also in the background there is a dandy lion with a red stem and white fluffy seeds that is out of focus.
Analyze: In this picture the plants are a very bright, springy green color.
Interpretation: This picture is showing the beginnings of spring with the plants just starting to sprout and the bright green colors.
Judgment: I think this picture should give a very happy, light emotion.
