Learning Photography From Chair Design

May 8, 2010 § 1 Comment

I was watching TED, as I like to do sometimes, and at the end of one of the talks appeared this image:

His point is that art should be fun or entertaining. I’ll take his point a step further and say that this chair can teach you photography skills.

I’ve said it before, this is nothing new really – art (in my opinion) should tell a story; regardless of the art medium.

The chair above is case in point. The chair has lost it’s foot/ball/thing, and it’s reaching to get it back. It’s a whimsical impression that the chair is doing it’s best to please it’s master. It’s cute and playful and evokes the emotion and motion of being. It doesn’t move, but we can imply that it does. Photography can do the same.

I’ve said it before, read the past here:
