Mood photos-today I want to talk about the mood in street photography. You're not paying attention to how you perceive a photograph? What feelings you have it calls-joy, laughter, grief or horror? Good mood in photographs-what is it? Funny people, funny or not just? Street photography, as saying many theorists and practice-this is a picture of mood. Any picture, good picture, causing emotions. Different emotions. If the picture does not cause any of the senses, the snapshot is not worth even a couple of seconds spent on its preview.
Incidentally, such photos grabs. And it is most often not the fault of the photographer, but just a lack of understanding of why he picked up the camera, for which he made a couple of dozen frames.
And the truth is for what? The motivation here is simple-went outside and just fix what is happening, everything. Life is not only emotions but also routine, mundane and sometimes it seems that the routine might be interesting. Well, Yes, as a testimony of the era, life, such pictures can be advertized. But they will be of interest only to specialists are historians or professional photographers.
How to create a mood in pictures
The task of the same street photographer-"hook" your snapshot of the man, make him feel something. Emotion is the basis of street photography. Optional strong emotions, not necessarily a person-emotions are transferred to the movement, posture, composition.
There are lots of pictures, great photos, where no major plans, where a man is pictured, but there is a rhythm, geometry, lines and all this also causes emotion. Such photographs, with the apparent anonymity, rivet and not released. To make the snapshot you want to or be a true artist, or if you need luck, or need of observation and a developed sense of beauty.
But such images are rare and even great photographers make hundreds of shots and touches, and stays in memory for only a few, if not the only one. Therefore, to create a picture of mood, and pass the good mood in photographs, will focus on people. It's easier and that the main thing is like.
Good mood in photographs to create simple, only need to closely monitor people on the street. Here's a mother playing with her child, here are a couple of lovers, here's a girl talk. Catch emotion and do click on button.
Tip: If you want to catch the mood and capture the smile, laughter, do not remove from close range-you can frighten off people and will be spoiled. Armed with a rangefinder lens and shoot at a distance. People don't like when they are staring at you. If a person will notice that it is removed, then the mood may change and the moment is missed. Remove from afar, and so that you have not noticed.
We are talking about street photography.
With production photos are different and the mood you can create artificially-all depends on the ability of the model to concentrate. In the case of reportage photography, here everything is easier, the man knows that his shoot and he wants the world to see his emotions and mood.
Good pictures cheer up-this is true on all of 100%. But the most important thing in any art-sentiments that calls work. The same is true for music, and for paintings, and pictures of any genre.
If we want our pictures liked caused positive emotions, you should be more attentive and look for these very emotions, and shoot.
Today on the Internet are popular resources with all sorts of gags and such images are collecting a lot of likes, they divide and spread. In terms of popularity, such images will certainly win, but catch this frame rarely, and not always such pictures are really good. Shooting a drunken fuss, falls or even something more extreme may provoke laughter for a moment, but……..
Reminded of the movie "the taming of the Shrew" with Celentano in a leading role-he taught a lesson of their guest, tells him about how funny, when a person falls or gets into the snout of the cake. Think-is it so fun when someone falls or flies into chaos? You caught the frame and what after? After can be a pain, tears. So catching a moment you can and get your few hours of Fame, but is it worth it?
Sometimes it seems that a good mood you can pass, removing smiles, joy. This is not entirely true. More precisely, not only a smile, you can create a mood in photography. Scene that you catch in the frame, too, can bring a smile, even if people on the pictures will be serious.
Tip: If you want to take a picture, calling positive emotions or attempt to catch something that will differ from reality. Sometimes contrast with the reality better than open and strong emotions.
Mass moments in our life that can cheer up-you only need to be more attentive.
Be more attentive and good shots will add to your collection.
