6 Ways Photography Can Make You A Better Designer

Photography and designing go hand in hand. If you are a good photographer with a sound knowledge of framing, composition, lighting, and colors; you will never have to doubt your designing skills and vice-versa. 

You can be a better designer by learning the similarities between photography and design. If you can create a great design, you definitely can compose a great photograph too. Photography helps you improve your design skills in many ways, here are few:  

Composition

Composition in photography is similar to the layout in designing. No matter in which genre of design you excel in, the layout of your elements can make or break your design. In photography, you have to plan out visually what elements in the photo you want to include for the viewer to see; the same skill is required in designing too.

Lighting

In photography, lighting is the most important thing to know along with composition. Lighting can take the most mundane subject and transform it into something intriguing and engaging in both photography and designing. Light or value is used to creates depth and can also create a pattern and can enhance your composition in many ways.

Texture

Using texture in photography can make your photograph three dimensional and engaging. In designing, using texture correctly and carefully is the one important part. Emphasizing texture in your design and photograph can accentuate a sense of size and expansion and can give a sense of touch to the viewer.

Negative space 

Negative space, that is valued in both photography and design, can be used as an innovative compositional tool. Understanding how to utilize space is challenging and rewarding. Space defines importance, guides your eyes where they should look, and let your eyes rest, among other things.

Color

The color is the most crucial component to consider in design and in photography. Every different color has its own mood and energy. The impact of your photography and your designs can be boosted by 100% by an intentional use of color.

Balance

When something is symmetrical, it creates a clear path for your viewer to follow. it is sometimes an overlooked element in design but can be very striking in both photography and design. Symmetry creates the visual balance of elements on both sides of the page.

Photography and design are similar in so many ways. That is why the arch academy is looking for photographers who understand and appreciate Design and its importance in everyday life. If you think you are the one, then what are you waiting for?
