As I continue to learn about the stock photo world I have read many articles about creating photo's that leave space for some one to add text, or even an insert into the photo. This is call ed an unfinished photo.
As odd as it sounds, sometimes you can add something to a photo to make it unfinished.
Here is a nice background photo of some colored golf tees. But by adding the golf ball it then becomes unfinished. The ball gives room for some one to add something to the photo.
Another take off of this is to frame something, thusly leaving room for copy space.
This again is what I would consider an unfinished photo.
We all for some reason enjoy going fast. We indeed have a need for speed.
We will stand in long lines at an amusement park and pay good money to go fast. We love the thrill of it.
So how can we transfer that feeling of speed to a photograph?
One way is to use what our mind already knows and put it in the photo.
Here's one example, we have all seen a plane climbing into the sky. When we see the photo we can almost here the engine pitch upward as it struggles to break the laws of gravity.
The smoke helps to give a visual of speed.
On the other hand a plane diving at a steep angle has an increasing downward pitch.
In all the movies that's all you can here when the planes are diving is that loud increasing roar of the engine.
