  • Why Photography is not Reality

    Why Photography is not Reality

    06/05/2020 Duración: 22min

    Understanding that photography is not reality is the gateway to artistic expression. Photography is just a representation of something, so give yourself permission to be an artist. You'll never see a waterfall the same way as a long exposure photograph, so what are we trying to achieve? The truth is that photography is merely a representation of something. If you're caught up in trying to capture reality, you'll never progress. Give yourself the freedom to create something and let go of the illusion of reality.

  • Create an Unexpected Composition

    Create an Unexpected Composition

    18/03/2020 Duración: 19min

    When we get more experience as photographers, we learn how to create unexpected compositions for our audience. The goal is to give our viewers something new, unexpected and interesting for them to enjoy. What is the ultimate goal of photography? Is it merely to document a person, place or object? Maybe for some. For others, it's an artistic expression.  While we grow as photographers, our audience expects more from us than merely repeating the same old things. They get bored if we don't show them something new. The trick with an unexpected composition is not just to show the audience something new, but something new that they'll like and enjoy. That takes time, practice and maybe a bit of luck. You start to see opportunities that you didn't realize before, and that's what leads you to create new photographs to share with your audience.

  • How to Use Rhythm and Proportion in Photography

    How to Use Rhythm and Proportion in Photography

    04/03/2020 Duración: 17min

    Rhythm and Proportion in photography are two elements of composition that you can use to engage your audience. Rhythm shows patterns that draw the eye closer, while proportion shows how to use objects of different size in your photos. Rhythm in photography happens when you use patterns, like rings of water emanating out after you drop a stone in a still pond, or rows of seats in a stadium. One of the interesting things you can do is show how to interrupt that pattern, and cause your viewer to pay attention to the interruption. Proportion deals with the relationship between objects in size and space. We'll talk about how to use either perfect proportion or distorted proportion - and when to use them to engage your audience.
