I’d like you to use this week’s journal prompt as an occasion to hone your analytical skills. Find a visual text—a photograph, painting, poster, video clip, etc—and post the URL to the blog. Proceed to, in 200-300 words, give a brief analysis of the text for its visual rhetoric. Some aspects you could address: lighting, space, use of angles (or “point of view”), color, symbolic imagery, binaries (blank vs. blank), mood, etc. If you’re using a video clip, it should be no longer than 2-3 minutes—30 seconds would be long enough to give you material to write about.
Due Sunday, 10/16, by midnight.
