The Power of the Visual Image

A VISUAL REMINDER  ON THE POWER OF PHOTOS

After watching the Prince tribute on SNL this weekend, I am reminded of the power of the visual image to capture a moment. As a professional photographer, of course I know how important an image can be – it’s my career. But even us old pros need a reminder of how special the art of visual image is sometimes. The capturing of a split second in time in an image can say more than a thousand words ever could. At the end of Prince’s concerts, I had forgotten how he sometimes ends a set. He gets silent and lifts his guitar almost like it’s a God offered for worship. I had a moment where I clicked on that image in my mind, as if it were a still photo image and thought how incredible that one second capture in a still, would be if someone in fifty years, asked, “Who is Prince?”

I experience this kind of visual synchronicity all the time when I am shooting a home for instance, and the sun begins to set creating a sky that I couldn’t have painted any better. Or when a bird flies into a shot, unplanned. A little magic caught by the lens. It’s a different kind of narrative.

With that in mind, I have included what I think is a powerful image from a recent photo shoot. It’s a photo of an old Dodge truck from 1939. Take a look and see if you agree with me when I say, “There is nothing like the visual image to tell a story.”

Green Scene Landscaping by Scott Cohen

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Talented people do everything well as is with my favorite Landscape Design artist Scott Cohen, owner and head designer of Green Scene Landscaping located in Canoga Park. It was a pleasure photographing Scott’s own home during my last night photo outing and seeing some of the great use of materials and skills Scott uses applied to his own home castle. Scott uses unique materials to achieve the desired look both inside and outside his home.
