Photos shape our perceptions. They intrigue and manipulate viewers on an emotional level. We are usually not aware of it at all even though we think we are rational beings and can look through a ruse.

Looking at the same dress here photographed differently, I cannot help but being more interested in the image on the right and I wonder why? It does not show the dress perfectly, in fact I can barely make it out against the light, but the photo conveys an emotion and that's what I am responding to. Comparing the two images, they clearly tell very different stories.

The topic of what's fashionable photography in the craft field pops up regularly as a perennial evergreen and opinions are understandably divided on how to best present work. White or black background, use of a model or not?


Have any thoughts on this? Is there something you've seen lately in (craft) photography that is better than what we have been doing for a while now? I am always interested in learning what's new. LMK.
