Exercise: A single figure small

Find a suitable situation to photograph a single figure small, consider the viewer’s eye and how the figure will be in the image.

I was actually working on some images of the cathedral for a previous assignment and saw the person stood in the open space. I waited until they had moved a little more into the lighter area as I thought that the contrast between them and their dark clothes would stand out and draw the viewer’s eye into the image. Not only does this show a single figure small but in the huge open space of the cathedral, this really gives a sense of scale, and I feel also of awe and silence as its very clear what the building is and why people are using it
