Since I'm doing a spring cleaning on my computer here, i thought i'd show some examples of composition. Just a few ones i'm filing, just for fun. The more extensive file is on my other comp ;)
so many artistic principals at work here, especially the use of perspective and gradations to focus the audiences attention.
love how he framed this one, and used the dynamism of the frame with Monica, and water mist creating another layer - it also fits the story amazingly well (thematically)
notice the blond hair dark dress, brown hair white shirt. Use of contrast, and also Antonioni was a fan of texture (tree, ex.), i think ;) I haven't seen all his films.
Henri-Georges Clouzot's "Quai Des Ofevres"
This film was a wonderful surprise, and this is a still of a particularly good reason -> not only does he use all the tools of a director but there's multiple themes and story playing out gracefully.
