1. Compositional Abstraction
- subject isn’t relevant
- abstraction to a degree
- it’s all about composition
- more aware of lines, value, shapes, balance, symmetry, spatial ambiguity, texture, light, depth of field & film grain

2. Domestic Metaphor
- photograph of a symbol, document, thing which stands for something more.
- how a figure interacts with it’s background
- suggests a larger idea
- objects in your house
- represents your home, your domestic life
- objects everyone will recognize – avoid esoteric & personal things
- boring things but not boring photos
- utilitarian objects work well
- photograph so that they are no longer boring and common
- visual hierarchy, vantage point
