What makes a good photo?

In class on 2/9 we brainstormed what makes a good photo? Here is the excellent list we created:
  1. composition: the arrangement of subjects in the frame
  2. lighting: direction of light (and other qualities)
  3. clear focal point (this can be done with focus, color, contrast, etc)
  4. there is a clear purpose: the photo conveys the goal/message of the photographer
  5. the subject is interesting
  6. unique perspective
  7. creativity
  8. depth of the image, multiple layers
  9. emotional response
  10. technical skill
Memorize this list. We'll discuss this more next week.
