Classical Art Designed for Photographers
I don't know about you, but I spend more time on youtube than any other site on the internet.
There's so much great stuff to enjoy... and not only cat videos.
If you want to improve your photography (whether beginner or professional) here's a 90 minute lecture by artist and photographer Adam Marelli on using classic art principles in your photography.
Sounds dry... but it's very easy to understand and practical to use in your own work straight away.
Adam gives an overview of design principles from art history and applies them to photography, using examples from artists such as Velasquez and photographers, such as Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams etc.
- figure/ground relationships to maximise the impact of the subject in your photo
- finding a rhythm of light and dark in your image
- what is most important in the image
- letting your subject drive the image and lots more.
