Create Photos With IMPACT By Composing With Purpose

Create Photos With IMPACT By Composing With Purpose | Shutterworks Photoblog | Scoop.it

I’m not here today to tell you about the different “rules” of composition. I’m not going to tell you what is right and what is wrong, because ultimately, the “rules” themselves are both right and wrong in different situations and it’s up to you as the photographer to determine when and how to use them – to do that – you must compose with purpose.

Capturing the Soulful Portrait | Shutterworks Photoblog | Scoop.it

To shoot a portrait is to capture the essence of the person, the story of their life, their livelihood and a substantial emotion within the photograph.  For instance, we come across numerous faces everyday but there are some peculiar interpretations within few humans which will remain hard for us to take them apart from our memories. So what causes this deep impression within our subconscious mind to keep reverberating that particular face of the person, unforgettable and so strong.

Improving Composition with Tonal Contrast

Improving Composition with Tonal Contrast | Shutterworks Photoblog | Scoop.it

If you were to ask me for two ways that you could improve the composition of your photos, the first piece of advice I would give you is to keep the composition as simple as possible. Eliminate anything that isn’t part of the story from the frame.

 

The second part of the answer is to focus on tonal contrast. Now, many discussions of composition tend to concentrate on the basics, such as the rule-of-thirds, leading lines, use of colour and so on. Not many people seem to be talking about tonal contrast. That’s a shame, because it’s an element that can really improve your composition.

It’s a well-documented ‘fact’ that writers encounter writer’s block. Photographers also run into that creative wall and it can be very discouraging if you can’t seem to get back on your feet after a while. Stay in that same spot for long and you could even begin to doubt if you ever had any hope in the industry at all, so do avoid it as much as possible!
