Selective focus. Rule of thirds composition. The photo Emma Watson shows her as very innocent and almost child like.




Rule of thirds composition with the model directly in the center of the photo. A bit of surrealist hyper realistic with the high sheen of the body. The photo is very sexual and she appears to laying in a bed of palm leaves. This could suggest that she is a piece of meat being displayed.



This photo is a very good example of hyper realistic and surreal photography with an Edward Scissorhands type quality.



This photo also shows hyper realism with the water being drenched and subject being fully clothed.



Selective focus is being used. The photograph is exploring masculinity and femininity with the subject applying lipstick and looking startled. The photo would also suggest that it is a candid moment and the colors suggest it could almost be from a film.
