Photos with Drawcards
Do you guys see why this is a good photo?
I want to take the time to talk about my mindset towards what I believe makes a photograph legitimately good.
Sometimes I think people don't have the eye for a good photograph. So I'll explain my mindset towards what makes a good photo.
A good photo has a drawcard. It draws you in because of that "feeling" that "something" within the frame. An expression, a gesture, the action, the composition. These things make up a good photograph and when a photograph is good it rises above the average. Not every photo has a drawcard. But when they do, they shine and thats when a good photo is produced.
In regards to this photo, the drawcard is the expression and the gesture. A cold wind results in a jacket wrap around from their partner. A true sign of affection and the expression to accompany.
This photo captured that exact gesture, that exact moment, that exact feeling. Thats why its a good photograph. Its unusual, but its real.
I find myself only ever drawn to these kind of spontaneous, unplanned photos these days.
I'll explain another.
Photos with drawcards are king in good photography.
