Story-Telling through Visual Design is a 62-page, downloadable PDF eBook densely packed with useful information, helpful tips, and spectacular, full color images to inspire you to create better photographs.
I’m not a fan of blindly following rules; it stifles creativity. Rules do exist for a reason; the way our brains works means that the way you respond to an image is predictable. Understanding this allows you to follow or break rules in order to best tell your story.
Visual Design Elements
Learning picture composition is like learning a foreign language. First you must learn the vocabulary. Visual design elements are the vocabulary of photographs. They are the building blocks of your image. In this eBook, I discuss light, including color and tone, as well as lines and shapes. Everything is explained in the context of how it best tells your story.
Visual Design Principles
After learning the vocabulary of a language, you then learn the grammar. This allows you to describe relationships. In photography, there is a set of visual design principles that will guide you to the most effective arrangement of your visual design elements so that you get your message across. In this eBook, I discuss dominance, balance, visual weight, and the use of positive and negative space.
To help you understand how the visual part of the brain works, I describe a few fascinating psychology experiments that provide evidence for the visual design principles that are presented. Take a peek at the inner workings of the mind!
