La colocación de objetos dentro del cuadro visible influye en la reacción de la audiencia, aunque no sea consciente de esto, por esta razón, es muy importante tener un diseño de encuadre adecuado para las emociones que se intentan provocar en el espectador. Fantastic Mr. Fox de Wes Anderson Existen diferentes técnicas que facilitan la colocación de elementos en la imagen. Regla de Tercios La más conocida es la regla de tercios. The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly de Sergio Leona Cuadrantes La diferencia entre usar cuadrantes y la regla de tercios es poca. Drive de Nicolas Winding Refn Proporción aurea Aunque la medida exacta de la espiral no cabe en un cuadro de cine, se puede ajustar para crear composiciones originales y fuertes en esencia. Cobra Verde de Werner Herzog

Blog | Drew Chial Audiences love watching characters in dire situations work their way out. We want to believe that with enough determination anyone can lift themselves up by their own bootstraps. More than that, we want to believe that people have the power to look inward and turn themselves into someone better. A character’s growth should account for shifts in his attitude, but if his personality does a complete 180 it will affect his believability. New situations should nurture the hero’s evolution, while his nature should remain the same. Inconsistencies in the hero’s essence will feel like a betrayal to the audience. Allow me to illustrate my point with a sampling of references pulled from pop culture: from Bill Murray’s filmography, to panned superhero movies, and the Star Wars rereleases. What Bill Murray Teaches Writer’s About Constructing Characters Western storytelling is built on the idea that human beings can change. What Superhero Movies Teach Writers About Character Consistency Like this:

How to Create a Retro Boxing Poster in Photoshop As it's Graphic Design Week here on Psdtuts+, let's take a look at some basic Graphic Design principles and cast an eye over the Boxing Poster aesthetic from yesteryear. Creating a retrograde look is nothing new, but there are some things to keep an eye out for when mimicking Graphic Design from any decades past. We'll be drawing inspiration from Poster Design from the 1960s, particularly Boxing Posters from that era. As with any design project, you'll need to decide upon the medium which will carry your message. It's very good practice to sketch out a few ideas before sitting in front of the computer. Of course, for this type of project we'll need old paper stock. As the paper stock is from the 1960's (not really, but that's what we're aiming for), it wouldn't look quite this ancient so add a couple of Adjustment Layers to sort it out. ...and Hue/Saturation (Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation). Now we can start building up the poster design based on the original sketch.

Getty Images Sports Photographer Robert Cianflone Reporting from Sochi… In the picture above, taken on January 30th 2014, you see more than 315,000 Euro worth of Canon camera gear or 425,659.59 US dollars! That’s the value of a house and more than a Lamborghini Aventador!!! Now pick up your jaw, put it back into place, wipe away the drool and read about how the pictured gear wasn’t even around seven years ago. When IOC President Jacques Rogge announced in July 2007 that Sochi was named as the host city of the 2014 Winter Games, the Getty Images global operations team went into full swing to begin preparations. Even though the actual event only runs for 16 days, years of planning are required to bring an event together so it runs seamlessly for all those involved. At this point the venues that will host the games haven’t even been built! The team has to find out as much information as possible in advance. Where are the venues? So what’s changed about the gear you see now to how it was seven years ago? Back then we had the MkIIN cameras with a crop sensor. 5 Steps to Creating Long Shadows in Photoshop I had kind of a hard time coming up with an appropriate title for this post… I’m still not totally sure if it conveys what I’m trying to show you today. As you may hopefully have guessed by looking at my new image, I’m going to be talking about how I made the shadow that the eagle is casting. The problem was I couldn’t really call this post, “How to Create Long Shadows Cast By A Subject That Is Suspended In An Epic Beam Of Light.” It’s just a bit too wordy… So anyway this is how I did it! Before we get started, please note that for this technique to make any sense, your subject should indeed be suspended in some sort of epic beam of light. Feel free to check out this superb little tutorial from Phlearn about how to add fake light rays: And thanks a million to Kath Harper for lending me this exquisitely captured eagle image! Step #1: Cut It Out This step is pretty self explanatory. Step #2: Create an Evil Twin What? Step #3: Radial Blur Hit “OK” and let it do its thing.

The language of flowers, herbs and trees: 71 plants and their meanings People have long used specific flora to convey secret messages, here's how they let nature do their bidding. Now we have Hallmark and emoji, but there was a time when people borrowed from the plant world to express themselves. While using flowers to convey one's feelings was long used in Persia and the Middle East, the practice really came to fruition during the Victorian era. And is it any wonder? Those chaste Victorians weren't the most flirtatious bunch, so why not say it with flowers? And beyond bashful courting, there was an appreciation of botany that western culture seems to be lacking in now. Known as floriography, flowers were sent to reveal secret sentiments of love and affection – but flowers meant to pitch woo could be arranged differently to impart a negative message instead. Floriography entered the European imagination as early as 1809 with the publication of Joseph Hammer-Pugstall's list, "Dictionnaire du language des fleurs."

Minimalism: Using Negative Space In Your Photographs A Post By: James Brandon Sometimes it’s nice and refreshing to just strip a photo or scene down to it’s absolute bare essentials. Often times, I get too caught up in trying to fill every part of the frame with something interesting. The trick/secret is this: Negative space can be just as interesting in a photograph as anything else, if done right. I encourage you to consider this the next time you go out shooting. Image by Brian Matiash In the above image, Brian Matiash actually set out to create a series of minimalistic, black and white images around Staten Island. Image by Mike Olbinski I love this image by Mike Olbinski. Image by James Brandon (that's me!) Finally, here’s an image from my own portfolio. Conclusion I hope this quick post will inspire you to go out and incorporate negative space into some of your work, if you haven’t already. If you have examples of minimalism in your work, we want to see it!

10 Lady Podcasts You Should Be Listening To Right Now Women-hosted podcasts may be few and far between, but the lady shows that are out there are fabulous and well worth the listen. With so many women working in audio, it’s only a matter of time before more strike out in this indie-radio field—it happens to be the perfect platform for young female voices. Here’s a list of podcasts that any “feminista,” foodie, and long-distance friend can relate to. Call Your Girlfriend - You can’t not fall in love when Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow speak candidly about social issues, personal issues, their periods, and their poop. Black Girls Talking - Alesia, Fatima, Aurelia, and Ramou are four black women with so many things to say, and we are lucky to be able to listen. Chewing The Fat - Since when do we not love everything having to do with food? Throwing Shade - Self proclaimed “Homosensual” Brian Safi and “Feminasty” Erin Gibson (our girl crush) bicker like two old broads and have the attention span of puppies, and we love them for it.
