Emotions and Connection-NSFW

One of the things I talk about in class is the reason we connect with photographs. As humans we have grown and evolved to react in predictable ways to things that happen to us.

If I was talking to you about dating I could show you a few things that would probably increase your success with the opposite sex. In fact, for kicks I’ll tell you something you might not know.

You’re out with your friends and you meet a nice girl and you decide to go talk to her (5 second rule). You walk over and start talking. She talks back and then you decide to move to more comfortable location in the restaurant. You spot a booth so you both head over.. and then you make the mistake. You let her slide in first.

The problem here is that she is stuck behind the table and you with no way to escape.

This is called blocking and it creates unwanted stress for her and she is now uncomfortable and the next move for her is to make up a story… maybe a friend needs her help.. maybe the bathroom is calling… she will make up a story to get out of the block and feel safe.

The psychological reason behind this is most women feel that the man who is in front of them is probably stronger and can be more aggressive. Deep down she always considers her safety first.

You didn’t make her feel safe.

In a book I read a while ago there was a saying…. “The whisper of a thousand generations.”

We constantly have “The Whispers of a thousand generations” running through our veins.

Genetic Biology is the reason you just messed up with the girl.

Always consider the thoughts and feelings of others and you will have a better life.

Always make the security of others a priority of yours.

Now about photography….

When we connect with anything, we connect for one reason.

It’s makes us feel something.

For example: LOVE

We tend to fall in love with people who make us feel safe. Who make us feel good about ourselves and give us hope for a better future. We fall in love with people who give up most positive emotions.

Example: DESIRE

We Desire things that are mysterious, things we want or don’t/can’t have. We desire things that are hard to get.

When I take photos I use this concepts, or triggers to create images that draw people in. I don’t think things like…. Focus has to be perfect. Lighting has to be perfect. The face has to be lit.

I think… Mystery. Love. Desire.  AND when photographing a lady I always think of Audrey Hepburn.

My goal is to make people feel something when they view my work.

One way I accomplish this is through exposure.

I just realized I need to get ready for a photo session so I will have to finish this later.

The next post I write will be on creating beautiful images that connect thought adjusting your exposure.
