Last week I shared a movie, The Sound of Music, to help photographers learn about light and composition. This week I want to share another film to help in telling your story through photography. I believe every photograph tells a story, but to be a great storyteller you must first learn to recognize the story. This week I would like for you to watch another great movie without the soundtrack. The reason for watching these movies without the accompanying soundtrack is to help you focus on the image. You'll be surprised at what you will learn by doing this.
This weeks movie for photographers to watch is "Amelie"! This week I'd like you to focus on the use of color and how the color plays a role in telling this amazing story. Its funny how watching a film without the soundtrack brings the focus on the power of the image. Amelie has been among my favorite movies for a while but after watching it without the sound I felt it was powerful for this week more than others I had in mind.
This week I will again use Twitter to send messages related to this film with the tag "#Amelie" and discuss how aspects of this movie can help in developing your eye as a photographer.
Always Dream Big
