Creating Images with Impacy by Chane Cullens (7:30 PM EST)
The famous saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words," underlines the profound influence of a powerful photograph in stirring emotions. During this session, we'll explore the four fundamental principles that contribute to the impact of a photograph: storytelling, creativity, composition, and technical finesse.
Storytelling encompasses a photo's ability to narrate a tale and captivate the viewer's imagination. Creativity entails discovering an extraordinary or unconventional approach to depicting an everyday subject. Composition involves guiding the viewer's gaze toward the most captivating or compelling aspects of the photograph. Finally, technical excellence pertains to the inherent quality of the photograph, attainable through adept camera techniques and skillful editing.
