Member Article: The Importance of Design in Photography

In our next article, Nat provides an introduction to the concept of photographic design. This is a topic which we will cover in much more depth over the coming months. This short piece will get you started thinking about it.

Assignment: Kitchen / Garage Still Life

Here's a great exercise building on the basic idea of designing photographs.

Spend some time in your kitchen and/or garage, finding interesting things to photograph: utensils, cookware, tools, storage containers, etc. Create multiple arrangements with the objects, concentrating on the strength of the compositions and the use of lighting and depth of field. The images can be representational or abstract—it's up to you.

Make various photos and process them to share in one of our upcoming Zoom meetings.
