On Design & Photography

My interest and passion in design — applied to photography:

The greatest boon of studying design is applying the concepts to photography.

For example:

  1. How to design a frame (composition is designating what is of importance to you in the frame).
  2. Dynamic design (dynamic composition concepts)
  3. The aesthetics of your photo (color combinations or black and white) and post-processing styles, etc.

To design: to designate. If you designate what you show is important (you designate and select the subject-matter and what to and what *NOT* to photograph) and you also design the composition (you designate what you find is beautiful or not in a frame).


A designer seeks to beautify the world, by creating beautiful things.

As a photographer, you do the same — you desire to create beautiful images, and bring them into the world!
