Today we feature a body of work by inspiring photographer Christoph Hetzmannseder. His work is quite versatile, so we’ll be focusing on the way he uses negative space to tell a story, captivate and inspire us all.
Featuring a story-telling photograph by Heather Binns, we are inspired both technically and spiritually. We explore the message in the photograph as well as the methods and compositional means in which she tells the story.
This week, we learn from the work of Christoph Hetzmannseder just how important it is to consider your audience. In short, it is easier to connect with fellow photographers. But how do you connect with everyone else? One way is to tell a simple story. Christoph’s photo, “Lost Shoe”, tell’s such a story. We will explore the photo and learn from his fine example.
This week we feature the photo, “Lost Screw”, by Djura Stankovic, who is among the Shutter Photo royalty. We’ll explore how Djura tells such an interesting story of (and using) such a simple subject. Read on to be inspired.
Sometimes it’s the details that we leave out or obscure that help us to tell the best story. Photographer Jonathan Russell’s photograph, “Path to St. Paul’s” is one that forces us to formulate a story based on how he’s obscured the main subject. Read on to learn about this great photograph and learn about this storytelling technique.
When composition alone isn’t enough, sometimes some contextual cues can help us to tell a simple story and create a great photograph. That’s the lesson we learn this week with Mark Heath’s inspirational photograph, “Pearl Tower, II”, in which he uses focusing techniques to offer context and story line to the photograph. Read on to be inspired by Mark’s work, and to learn how you can improve your simple compositions with some context.
Wide angle lenses aren’t just for fitting the world into your lens, they’re also great for shooting close-up. Read on to learn the benefits of shooting close with wide angle lenses, and learn some tips about using them in this manner.
