Feel the Mood

I’m moving to my new website: www.worldbyjan.com

Every photo you can see on the Internet consist of two parts. Technical and emotional. I know guys that look just for technique, using rule of thirds, put the subject directly into intersection and they are done. I’m more that emotional guy. I want to have some mood in my photos, want them to talk to you, to viewer. What were my feelings, what I saw, what my heart saw.

Don’t get me wrong, composition is important, but when I see a photo with huge emotional charge, I just don’t care about the golden rule or anything like it. If a photo stops me, talks to me, grabs my attention, it has a big chance to be a great photo. Try to tell a story with your pictures. Putting something into a frame is nice, but does it really belong there? What is a purpose of that subject? Does it bring something to a image you’re trying to take or does it take it out? Think about this next time you’re shooting. 😉

You can take a look at a picture and fall in love with it without any special reason. After a while you’ll start thinking what made me fall in love with it? There isn’t anything extra special so is it’s composition? Subject? Anything else? Sometimes it is a mood in the image. You can feel it but it is hard to describe. Of course it isn’t always there but you can create it using light or even post processing. But believe me, not every time it works perfectly.
