Hide your sub­ject

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

Some­times the less you show in a photo, the more mean­ing you can tease out of it. In­ten­tion­ally hid­ing some­thing is a provoca­tive move that dares the viewer to look harder for the pur­pose of the im­age. It lets you ex­plore themes in your im­ages, rather than specifics. Per­haps you could hide the face, or ob­scure your sub­ject be­hind some­thing, or show a per­son in sil­hou­ette, or with their back turned, or maybe just their shadow.
