Instagram: Pure Visual Communication


Bob, whose portrait you are viewing, asked me if this were an example of the “Rule of Thirds”, something he gleaned from listening in on a Digital Photography Workshop that I teach. No. This is the Rule of Fourths.

Actually, it is a cross, an archetypal symbol. Photography is a language and images can be coded with a wealth of information. Some of it is so succinct that it supersedes words. Pictures can make you want to do things: reach out to others, protect helpless babies, become indignant over injustice… Everyone has a camera phone at the very least. So, use your skills wisely.
