NO PHOTOSHOP PLEASE!

Considering advertising photographs and posters, the first thought is often: Photoshop. This is also in 9 cases out of 10 correct and anyone who has ever tried to recreate a similar picture can tell the difference. What terrible is that one is not able, as a layman, even to shoot the perfect shot, without Photoshop and other image editing tricks.

And that is what our blog post: The perfect photo. It’s about the symphony of dynamic, light, colors, details and the point of view. Most photographs are made by paying attention primarily on only one of these elements. Putting it all together but, from a composition is created, similar to a piece of music, in which combine all the instruments together in harmony.

How to do this, of course, out here with us.

1. Dynamics decides

The composition of an image in the composition and the interplay of motifs. Here it comes, to emphasize a particular element in the picture particularly and to guide the eye of the beholder targeted there. Pick this one composition with multiple elements and sit out there with the view. Decide for yourself what you feel is important or particularly obvious and structure the image accordingly.

2. Structure is everything

Rhythmic patterns and structures are often the perfect backdrop to accentuate and highlight certain motifs. A color contrast, a single detail or wall and floor patterns are perfect design support. They are as it were pierced by a specific subject and also directs the same interrupt the pattern the eye towards the subject.

3. Question of perspective

The eye level is a sure-fire perspective so photos turn out. However, it is also one of the most boring and common perspectives, one should occasionally break. Think of certain films where actors from a bird or a frog’s perspective are presented. This always has a reason, which is rooted in the story itself. The perspective mostly expresses oversubscription of a person, while the bird’s marked their subjection. The photography, cinematography very important to work with such effects. to give depth to the picture, you should stand in front of it in any case. Hard and clear sunlight can be more prominent contours and details, while diffuse light or fog can be rather blurred the contours, but emphasize the mood.

4. Pay attention to details

Details can tell an incredible amount. They often convey meanings and are examples of the totality of things. Details are similar to metaphors. They are not things clearly express signifiers. They are the connection point between the literal and the transferred meaning and go hence always in the depth. Instead of large designs with the wide-angle lens to take, direct your gaze rather perspective in different directions, going close to objects up or play with designs.

Take pictures with character and tell a story. You will be surprised how well this works. Even without Photoshop.
