Concept Shooting in Photography

Posted on: 6 November 2008

Concept shooting is similar to advertising, stock, and photojournalism for several reasons. First, concept shooting involves some intense analyzing of a “message” you want to strongly convey. Second, concept shooting involves careful consideration of your audience and how the message will touch them most powerfully. Third, concept shooting is centered on emotions, and the telling of a story in its message.[via dPS]

I rather think of concept shooting as shooting with a theme in mind. For example many contests have certain themes that they require photographers to shoot. dPS recently had a theme–texture. This requires the photographer to think about the concept or theme first and then go out and look for photo opportunities that uniquely capture that theme/concept.

Read the rest of the article for a good example of what to consider for the concept “love”.
