  • Sharpness:  The image is sharp in all key areas (no distracting blurriness anywhere in the photo)

  • Details:  Fine details are visible.  Edges are clear and perceivably distinct from the surrounding area.

  • Tonal Range: Several distinguishable shades of gray are clearly visible, including tones that are almost pure black & pure white, but because the range of gray tones is more limited than in the A+ / A categories, the photo seems a little flat in appearance.

  • Contrast:  The photograph looks slightly "dull" to the eye (– as though you were looking at the scene through a thick Plexiglas window) because it has fewer clearly distinguishable shades of gray. The "white" are as look grayish but the black areas are still pure black.

  • Grain / Pixelation:  The dots of grain are very small – almost unnoticeable

  • Spots:  There are no spots or smudges that ruin the clarity of any area – Large tonal areas are clean and clear looking.

"B" … (Strong)

  • Sharpness:  The image is acceptably sharp in all key areas (no distracting blurriness anywhere in the photo).

  • Details:  Fine details are visible.  Edges of shapes do not disappear into the surrounding areas.

  • Tonal Range (see above):  Several distinguishable shades of gray are clearly visible, including tones that are nearly pure black & white.

  • Contrast:  The photograph looks somewhat flat to the eye (– as though you were looking at the scene through a thick Plexiglas window) because it has a very limited range of clearly distinguishable shades of gray. The "white" areas look light gray & the black areas are really just very dark gray.

  • Grain / Pixelation:  The dots of grain are very small – almost unnoticeable

  • Spots:  There are no spots or smudges that ruin the clarity of any area – Large tonal areas are clean and clear looking.



Photographs can be either dark or light and still be “muddy.”  The term "muddiness" refers to the limited range of shades of gray and to the fact that details of objects begin to fade into each other.

"C+" image… (Good)



  • Sharpness:  The image should be sharp in all key areas, but some blurriness due to a slightly too slow shutter speed (slower than 1/60th second) may be evident at this level.

  • Details:  Fine details are visible.  Edges are mostly defined and distinct.

  • Tonal Range (see above): Relatively few clearly distinguishable shades of gray are visible.  White parts of the image look grayish and black areas are really just a very dark gray rather than pure black. Overall the photograph looks OK to the eye, but the flat blocky tone areas take away from the “realism” of the image.

  • Contrast:  The photograph looks somewhat "muddy" to the eye.

  • Grain / Pixelation:  The dots of grain are very small – almost unnoticeable

  • Spots:  There are very few / no spots or smudges that ruin the clarity of any area – Large tonal areas are mostly clean and clear looking.

"C" … (Average)

  • Sharpness The image should be sharp in all key areas, but some blurriness due to a slightly too slow shutter speed (slower than 1/60th second) may be evident at this level.

  • Details:  Fine details are no longer clearly visible.  Edges of shapes seem to disappear into the surrounding areas.

  • Tonal Range (see above): Very few clearly distinguishable shades of gray are visible.  White parts of the image look grayish and black areas are really just a very dark gray rather than pure black.

  • Contrast:  The photograph looks somewhat "muddy" to the eye and but the flat, muddy or blocked up tones take away from the “realism” of the image.

  • Grain / Pixelation:  The dots of grain are a little too large & affect the overall quality of the image.

  • Spots:  Large tonal areas are mostly clean and clear looking but some spots or smudges are visible in parts of the image & these spots ruin the clarity of those areas.






The blurriness in the photo above was caused by a shutter speed setting that was too slow to freeze the action. (The shutter speed should have been set for at least 1/500th second for this type of action photo.)








"D" quality images… (Needs Improvement)

  • Sharpness:  D quality images often appear to be blurry in several key areas. This may be the result of a shutter speed setting that was too slow to “freeze” camera shake &/or subject motion, or it may be the result of a lens that was not properly focused..

  • Details:  Because some parts of the image are just “blocks” of tone it is difficult or even impossible to see the details of many of the individual objects - edges disappear into the surrounding areas.

  • Tonal Range:  The tones of the picture are extremely “muddy” looking. As with the C+ / C images - D quality photos may appear either dark and muddy or light and muddy. The shades of gray are not clear or precise; in fact, they are barely distinguishable from one another. “Whites” look medium gray, “black” are darkish grays instead of pure blacks.

  • Contrast:  The photograph looks more like an old Xerox copy than like a true photograph.

  • Grain / Pixelation:  The dots of grain are a large & affect the overall quality of the image.

  • Spots:  Spots &/or smudges are visible in parts of the image & these ruin the clarity of those areas.

 missing/ incomplete:

Each response is detailed & cogent (appropriate & to the point)
















Specific examples are cited to support statements
















Understanding of the ELEMENTS of composition / design is demonstrated in the structural analysis grid.
















Understanding of the PRINCIPLES of composition / design is demonstrated in the structural analysis grid.
















Understanding of the relationship between structure (elements & principles) and content / message (visual communication) is demonstrated.










 In your responses to the graphic communication questions (IV-A) you do not make specific connections between the things the photographer has included in the photo and the “message” of the photo.

Reflective insight is demonstrated (The student has used higher level critical thinking skills to analyze this photograph, has introduced cogent, original ideas and has supported those ideas with well-reasoned logic.










You are missing out on the FUN!

The most enjoyable part of looking at photos is the attempt to see it through the eyes of the original photographer. Your responses to the analysis and graphic communication question sections do not demonstrate that you have thought about this photo on more than the most superficial level.
