Chapter 4 of Kobre definitely had some of the funniest photos I’ve seen. I like the paragraph about taking a candid because I love being and taking them. It its such a rare moment that you can capture someones happiness, sadness, every emotion in a one shot and that is very special. I love the nature pictures on page 94 and 95. They all show an art of doing an everyday thing. On page 98 I like the paragraph about find a unique angle because angle is a huge part of photos and can make such an ordinary photo into an  extraordinary photo.

Chapter 5 about portraits is definitely one of my favorite chapters. I love taking portraits of people. “Let people be themselves” is a really great paragraph because in oder to get a good representation of the person into a photo they need to feel comfortable and be themselves. If they aren’t is it really a portrait? I also like the paragraphs about light because i am all about light when it comes to photos. If theres good lighting there can be a god picture. reading about group portraits was in treating to me because I’ve never really heard of someone doing this nor did i know it was possible, so it was cool to see an example of this. All in all, best chapter ever!!

In chapter 14, I really loved all of the pictures in this chapter. Most were vey odd and creepy but I loved how out of the box they were. I especially love the photo on page 384. I think it is beautiful. I love the paragraph about translating words into images symbols because that really helps get the message across. It gives you more of the significance of what is going on in that certain product. My other favorite photo is on page 391 with all of the dalmatians. One because I love dogs, two because I love movies too, so it is both of them together is the perfect thing ever. I don’t know how they got all the dogs to stay still though. My other favorite one is on page 394 with the kid and the moon pie.I also loved the “weak photos” paragraph because sometimes we can’t get a good photo no matter what you do. I love how the book shows you how they edited it to make it look that certain way starting from A-I. All in all, this was a good chapter with all of the photos and a good way of showing how to do certain things.
