This week we will being looking thru the eye of a skilled photographer I have personal met named Ethan Hunsaker. With a few of his photos we will be discussing a few skill that makes a photo stand out and become something of note to remember. Each photo will be the original and the latter will have some draw over effect to point out the specific points I will talk about. Do note all these photos used are by Ethan Hunsaker.
Here we see the Leading Lines used naturally by the tree points directly to the focus of the photo, the couple in the picture. Using this natural element of design, it truly makes the photo stand out and yet a feeling of closeness to the subject of the photo.
Rule of Thirds
We see the couple here line up with the Rule of Thirds to give the photo a strong impact. On a side note Ethan set up the couple to have a depth of field in the photo for added effect. We will talk about that in the next photo picked.
Depths of Field
Here is a photo that I loved that captures the element of using the Depths of Field to bring a stronger emotion from the photo. The Focus on an unknown individual looking upon a blurred but obvious courtyard of American flags.
In Summary, we can see how strong these photography elements help play a role to improve and make the photos stand out in a pleasing way. I always enjoyed viewing Photographer Ethan Hunsaker’s work as he uses these elements effectively in various ways.
