Astonishing color and texture come courtesy of a winter ice storm in Portland. A design lesson in freezing temperatures.
Susan says, “This wonderful photograph is very much about the role of light in design. It is light that transforms this photograph into something very special. Each exquisitely colored leaf is ringed in white, thanks to the light. The strong branches are bleached to a blinding white by the light. The light is also responsible for the intriguing shapes in the diffused, and unfocused background. Light brings depth, focus, and structure to this photograph. An additional bonus is the role played by the ice which heightens the colors and glazes everything with a glistening, candy-shell sheen.”
Lucia says, “Susan’s description of this photo gives us an in depth look at what makes it a compelling composition. Now, think about how you could use it to communicate an idea to your audience. When choosing a photo, it’s important that it’s pleasing to the eye while helping you make your point. A badly chosen photo can confuse or even turn off your audience. The power of visuals can’t be underestimated. Don’t be cavalier or hasty when adding photos to your presentation – even when under the pressure of time restrains. Choose your images carefully.”
