Exquisitely Composed Photos That Each Tell A Unique Story

Have you spent much time thinking about the nature of composition in a photograph? Consider this… when you begin the process of creating a photograph something has caught your attention. That “something” seems worthy of capture and to pass onto others (your viewers). The problem is the “others” aren’t there with you when take the photograph. They didn’t see and feel the scene as you did. Composition is the tool that helps you convey that silent message to a viewer who is perhaps thousands and thousands of miles away.

The Game

The subject of “The Game,” by Dani Miller, M.Photog.Cr., was brought in by her family a few months prior to the image being made. “He was a mouse hunter from the beginning,” she says, “so it was only right to photograph him for the family wall along with our other fur family.”
Sugar Hill Photography is based in St. Charles, Iowa, and specializes in child and animal portraits. sugarhillphotography.com

• Camera & Lens: Nikon D4S, AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens
• Exposure: 1/200 second at f/8, ISO 200
• Lighting: A Profoto B1 was camera right with a 4-foot octabox, with natural light camera left.
• Post-Capture: In Adobe Photoshop, levels and clarity were used to bring out the cat and table as well as the mouse and books. The mouse was photographed separately and composited onto the table. Blending with dodging and burning completed the image.

Cats Are Born To Be Models by Maria Basti

Cats are born to be models. They are elegant and composed, mysterious and curious, but with the right amount of goofiness thrown in the mix.

‘basti | pet photography | fotógrafa de animais localizada em Lisboa

Eterna despassarada e desde ’89 com a cabeça nas nuvens. Sofro de um desejo (quase) incontrolável de abraçar todos os animais que se cruzam no meu caminho, o que não é uma coisa má… Não fosse eu alérgica a cães e a gatos. Uma fotógrafa de animais alérgica a animais. Sentem a ironia? Eu sinto. Todos os dias. O aspirador tornou-se no meu melhor amigo e gasto uma pequena fortuna todos os meses em rolos autocolantes para tirar os pêlos da roupa.
