Over the previous lessons we have learned how to develop a Creative Idea and pre-visualise the Creative Image we want to create. We’ve explored how to apply the functions of the camera and lens to capture our raw image and how to paint the subject with the most important ingredient to our photographic recipe, light.
Now we have to bring the ‘photographer’s eye’ into play. It’s time to combine our photography and design courses. To take the elements of a photography design, mix the creativity of a photography composition course and add the last ingredient: posing. These are so important to lead the viewer through our Creative Image.
Light is the most important component of photographic art. However, from a purely artistic perspective, the application of design, composition and the posing of the subject will allow us to capture a compelling image that resonates with the viewer.
In John’s work, he likes to ‘Evoke & Provoke’. His images trigger the viewer by evoking an emotion and provoking a reaction. You’ll learn how to do the same.
