Here still an example, on a following photo:
It is obvious, that the eye on a photo runs in a certain order. And it thanks to lines which, being closed, force eyes to move in a certain order. As though on a circle.
In a following picture the main plot is the disaster. A trouble from the big letter. The signature under a photo: «the trouble Has come». So it named one of newspapers.
The first, that we see are a house. It is the result of its sizes and its singularity of our representations about the house. Then we pay attention to the standing person and its sight. Examining the person of the peasant, we would like to look, where he looks. Following movement of our eyes in a sight direction leads us to picture edge. We see, that the person looks for photo limits, but the pan and boxes return us in image frameworks, and on lines of columns we come back to the house. Now we consider details. Why the house is disorganised, why a dirt, why at the person on the person grief, why a hopelessness? These "why", force to think, reflect, predict a situation, to develop it. The photo transfers atmosphere of act of nature and a grief of simple people. It is the whole novel written by photographic language. Flooding in with. Колмацуй, in 1997 has forced many to reflect on influence of environment on us, about temporariness of life, about the help requiring and the place in this help and many other things.
It is obvious, that the main thing in a photo is its sense. Therefore the person a studying photo will be occupied by search of this sense. From here and a problem: the photographer is simply obliged to see this sense first of all. And here the first difficulties here begin. The artist always has time for judgement of a picture, for careful продумывания image details. The writer thinks over each word - he knows where to add, where to clean for achievement of the maximum communications between words and phrases. Search of sense of a photo occupies from the photographer few minutes or, even, seconds. Being on event, seeing a situation in development, it should group a shot in shares of seconds, allocate the main thing, cut superfluous and make that shot which will tell about this event as much as possible authentically. The order in chaos - so or nearly so so was spoken by Ansel Adams - the photographer who has thought up зонную system. The chaos and an order are two mutually exclusive concepts. The order is read easier. The rules considering psychology of perception, help to inform to the spectator idea of a picture. Accent of the photographer are the emotions transferred graphically.
We said that all strongest events occur on border. To event border. If to consider event in the development that the photographer should find that unique shot which can transfer this event with the maximum reliability. Very often, I noticed, the best pictures happen in the beginning or the event end. At this time it is necessary to be especially vigilant.
Let's return to a composition.
The graphic representation forms a direction of a sight and, as consequence, a direction of thoughts, development of representations about event. It is the tool in hands (or eyes) the photographer. Use of rules (there can be exceptions), helps with realisation of ideas. It provided that ideas are also them it would be desirable to inform. Having defined sense, search for forms which will help to inform this sense. Except a rule of thirds there are other rules.
