Photographer of the Day: Dawna Moore

If you would like to experience a beautiful vision of a vintage holiday, look no further then this image, “GMC Christmas” by  Dawna Moore.  Part holiday cheer, part nostalgia, it’s a warmly lit scene featuring Christmas decorations along with a nice slice of Americana.  Beyond these elements, the composition and lighting are excellent, from the technical choices with aperture to create the starbursts on the Christmas lights, to the balance of complimentary colors with the reds and greens.  The portrait orientation of the photo helps simplify a busy scene, placing the focus on the wreath and letting your eye travel throughout the frame to take in all the detail.

Photographer of the Day: Isengardt

The power of photography is its ability to make us feel and imagine from nothing more than a  2 dimensional collection of dots on a piece of paper or computer screen.  “Mannequins” by Isengardt, definitely makes you feel something, the best word I have to describe it is “uncomfortable”.  This is a “rule breaker” image, and why it works so well.  The mannequins have been transformed by the light and composition into something other than the typical figure of glamour we expect.  Messy hair, harsh light, and black clothes create something more out of a Hitchcock movie then a department store. We associate the eyes with life and personality, here they are lifeless, the gaze of each directed somewhere off frame.  This otherworldly scene takes the viewer out of their comfort zone, one of the greatest purposes of art.

“The purpose of art actually is, in many cases, to make you feel quite uncomfortable. Or at least to go to that place that’s already of discomfort inside of you and tap into that.”  – Michael Moore
