  1. Analysing an Image Persuasive Language Techniques

  7. Focus • What is our attention drawn to in the image? • Is it because of size? Position? Language? • Why is this element important?

  8. Emphasis • What/who is the main subject of the picture? • What attribute or characteristic of this subject is being emphasised?

  9. Purpose • For what purpose is this attribute or characteristic being emphasised? • How are we, as an audience, meant to feel? • How does this link to the contention of the written piece?
