Subject Matter… Make It Simple !


Thinking about what the Subject Matter expresses, rather than thinking about what you can express, puts several things in perspective…

1/ It puts the emphasis on seeing things outside of yourself. It helps you to let go of self and be much more observant of what surrounds you. Careful reading of one’s viewfinder is a prerequisite of good Photography

2/ Paying attention to the details of your surroundings will enrich your sensory experience and stimulate your imagination. By enumerating the elements composing your images, you’ll be able to select or reject the ones that contribute or not to the Subject Matter. The less you keep, the more your message will be clear : Do it Simple to do it Strong !

3/ First, you see what the Subject Matter expresses and then, you respond to it. This is the sequence by which our senses provide information…

4/ The sequence of seeing, then responding should be the one you follow when building your images. First, ask WHAT is expressed, then ask HOW… The answer will provide clear guidance about which elements  of visual design and how to use them in your composition.

This approach will make possible not only a greatest visual rewards, but also the greatest emotional ones.

This Workshop dedicated to Composition will deconstruct the process of Seeing. You will learn how to listen to your senses and to feel what your surroundings evoke to your mind. Then, you will try to freeze these moments in your camera using all the photographic tools and I’ll teach you the way to select and transmit one only message via your image.
