Adding a sense of scale

I love to shoot landscapes - I'm fortunate in that I currently live in a very scenic Australian State where landscape photography is a must.At times, it's difficult to convey a sense of scale with an image - I know the depth and breadth and height because I can see it with my eyes, but I can't necessarily convey that to someone who is viewing my photo.One technique to give your images a sense of scale is to bring people into them, because people give us a familiar point of reference - we know... continue reading

Seeing through the camera

Taking pictures not only involve looking and shooting.When we are experiencing a certain place space or object, not only our vision is stimulated; all our senses are; so when the photo is taken one may think that a great photo has been shot, but in reality it may be a corny boring shot void of all senses that we had experienced.A shot should be analysed in terms of color values and clarity of the subject.To shoot a tree having the same light source as the mountain behind; flatness will dominate.... continue reading

The power of an image.

I would like to try putting into words the power an image can have. Though we come equipped with 5 senses, the ones that have the most power are visual and auditory.These two senses have the power to make you laugh, cry, reflect, become angered, be repulsed, be drawn to, smile, be shocked by and a myriad of other emotions and actions.I remember seeing images of the twin towers ablaze and feeling shock, anger, despair, fear, and on and on. I recall getting a slide... continue reading

Hurt sense

People know so many possibilities to hurt them self and others. This capabilities are as many as them self. Unfortunately on Dreamstime I found less those examples then the ones that illustrating people happiness. That is optimistic.One of most obvious form of suffering is physical pain, when our body is telling us that something is wrong. We show hurt with unhappy, sad faces, objects that could hurt us, body with some color hurting parts.We suffering also with some psychical way, when we hurt... continue reading

Seeing sense

Most obvious sense of all is seeing, it makes us who we are illustrators, photographers, designers. Our imagination is also very important to our work. All of that our creations are really matching my idea, but I found like to show some photos and illustrations that really made the point.To homage all photographers illustration simple and accurate,to homage all illustrators illustration that have photo roots, beautiful, complex,and to homage all of us photo of exactly matching idea,... continue reading

Taste sense

Photographing taste sense by showing fruits, people tasting some dishes, showing them eating. Taste sense is better shown on photos then on illustrations. I was searching for some that are really not so obvious like this one.Dog is tasting a wooden fence, this dog was of course set up but he is so funny,and this one dog taste buds under microscope really amused me.I found also some illustration simple outline person tasting some dish – soup I supposeand photo of spaghetti on fork look... continue reading

Smell sense

Exact idea as with sound was dedicated to that subject and I found this subject on DT faster then when I was looking for some sound photos. This subject opposite to sound sense is easier to show in a photo then in illustration I think. So at first I show some illustration that matches my idea not as obvious as smelling flower.I found some incredible smoke illustration with colorful vibration,obvious but very charming illustration of woman smelling morning coffee in very simple form and brown... continue reading

Sound sense

Wondering how to show the sound sense in a photo I find some examples from many. Illustration is much simpler to do in that point. I found on DT some amazing illustrations of this expression but not many photos. I choose one of them because I think it is really matching for my idea. Even if illustrating is much simpler to create that kind of senses expressions I choose only a few to describe it.or simple graphic of beautiful woman listening music with some dreamy background in delicate wave lines,... continue reading
