Mind, concept, camera capture

October 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

One of the oddest things I had to do on every assignment for my degree in advertising and illustration photography was make a a story board and a mood book.  Basically a I drew stick people with badly scribbled backdrops and poses, cut and paste, (with glue and a book),  all types of material, pictures, and texts. Then once I had done that we would head out to shoot the image from the idea's from that book and the concept created in my stick people story board.  I came to realize as time passed by and our final exhibition of work, how important those tasks came to be.   I still use them to this day.   Before you capture an image you have to create the concept.  It doesn't matter if it is a family portrait or a three page spread in Vogue!  You still have to do the home work, even if they tell you what they want.

Sketching out the concept

In the pipelinesconcepts included the rack of piping and the chain linked fencing to fill in any negative space's that would distract the eye from the viewer.

Boxing in the subject. the lins of the pipe on both sides of the subject draws your attention to the subject. The facing beaks and defuses the light coming in from behind the subject.
