Insert Player to Start – Ubisoft E3 2014 Press Conference

June 12, 2014 0 By phoenixgenesis®

I love the bold symbolism behind this photo I took at the Ubisoft Press Conference in Los Angeles, California. I shot this digital image on my Olympus DSLR on June 9, 2014. I used the Rule of Thirds to place the head of the speaker within the lower left quadrant imaginary grid. I waited until she was engaged in her oral presentation to the crowd so that her body is alive with movement. Her dark colored clothing makes her stand out in contrast to the bold red of the background. The blue of the ring is the color opposite of the yellow lightning bolt and text, so both stand out in contrast, making them more dynamic. By positioning the speaker’s body to the bolt and the “Insert Player to Start” text, it appears that she is the player we are to insert to start the game. By leaving the left a little off balance with the black diagonal line and the black left edge, we get more of a three dimensional feel rather than a flat lifeless two dimensional image. This is perhaps my favorite photo I took during the Ubisoft press conference. I hope you enjoy this photography tip.
