To comm0n folks like me who only knows how to click a button or two,good photo is a nice one to look at.Yes, it is just the visual impact on my retina!Yesterday,I really learned something new from reading an interview of Gwen Lee,Director of 2901 Gallery,Singapore in a Canon magazine PhotoYou,Spring 2010 which I got free at a camera shop at KLIA.
Let me share her views here:
What made a good picture?
There is a difference between taking a picture and making a picture.The process of capturing an image is only part of photography-the making of agood picture should have an individual vision and voice.Aside from just correct exposure or good colour,a good picture reveals new perspectives of a subject matter and evokes emotions.triggers thinking,and highlights new insights to viewers.A good picture may not necessarily be pretty.Good pictures create impact in your mind.
Wow!That is a more than mouthful for me swallow!Now, I must go out more often 'playing' with my camera.Below is a snap shot of a bridge that is standing alone in a lake!Nothing can pass through it..
