10 rules of photo composition (and why they work) | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

 

n photography, it’s not just what you shoot that counts – the way that you shoot it is crucial, too. Poor photo composition can make a fantastic subject dull, but a well-set scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations.

 

With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images.

Social maps that reveal a city's intersections — and separations

Social maps that reveal a city's intersections — and separations | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Every city has its neighborhoods, cliques and clubs, the hidden lines that join and divide people in the same town. What can we learn about cities by looking at what people share online? Starting with his own home town of Baltimore, Dave Troy has been visualizing what the tweets of city dwellers reveal about who lives there, who they talk to — and who they don’t.

With Big Data Comes Big Responsibility

With Big Data Comes Big Responsibility | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Big data and the “internet of things”—in which everyday objects can send and receive data—promise revolutionary change to management and society. But their success rests on an assumption: that all the data being generated by internet companies and devices scattered across the planet belongs to the organizations collecting it. What if it doesn’t? Alex “Sandy” […]

An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments

An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
This book is aimed at newcomers to the field of logical reasoning, particularly those who, to borrow a phrase from Pascal, are so made that they understand best through visuals. I have selected a small set of common errors in reasoning and visualized them using memorable illustrations that are supplemented with lots of examples. The hope is that the reader will learn from these pages some of the most common pitfalls in arguments and be able to identify and avoid them in practice.

Making research more accesible

Making research more accesible | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

NYU Wagner hosts a series of talks as part of the 2014 Henry Hart Rice Urban Policy Forum: Neighborhood Inequality and the New Social Transformation of the American City. Back in April, I attended the talk of Robert Sampson, professor of Social Sciences at Harvard University. Sampson presented results from a longitudinal research study he has been working on in Chicago to learn about crime, disorder, neighborhood effects, and the social structure of that city. The combination of a well-structured narrative and appropriate use of supporting visualisations as slides made the lecture highly engaging and educative. The lecture also evidenced the important role of information design in the communication of a complex subject (e.g. research data and findings), and how a well-developed solution broadens understanding.

New data-visualisations: The quick and the dead

The genre of interactive charts is leaping ahead of static graphics

IT IS becoming clear that the native form for data is alive, not dead. Online, interactive charts will become the norm, nudging aside paper-based, static ones.

Just a few years ago the main way to present information was on paper; the computer screen offered amazing possibilities but was a niche. Yet the increasing ubiquity of tablets and smartphones turns this around. Static charts will be relegated to the status usually occupied by photography in relation to cinema, or radio to television—a subset of something more."

Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren’t echo chambers -- and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree.
