You answered a question about using "matching" objects and colors in photos in the news and more is happening this year. What is your opinion of this, and do you find it in any way supportive personally to people, is it acceptable to NOT do that in a photo, or is it more acceptable to do that nowadays? Do you think people should like it and support it, or is it simply up to them whether they like it meaning, not something everyone should like? I've seen a lot of this, have you?
And what do you think about objects that normally don't go together
being associated this way just because they match? Thanks.
What do you think about objects in photos that normally don't go together being associated in a photo simply because they match? And then,what about two things that match too closely in photos, obviously not a usual combination, except that they match? What is the popular opinion about this if there is one? What if it looks bad except it matches, one example of that being an earring matching a commercial logo in the background? That's it for me on this subject, thanks.
Hi again, and your most welcome!Thanks for your reply.Re: 'objects in photos that normally don't go together being associated in a photo simply because they match'--I like it because it's unique.If two things match too closely in a photo, it might seem boring, but it would also depend on the entire composition of the photo.
I think the general consensus on this is that things should match because that makes the photo 'even' and easier to look at, but then again, as I mentioned, its interpretation is a very individual thing.
An earring with a logo of the product being advertised and the logo in the background, I think is smart advertising.
O.K., the earring was not a logo earring, it was round and there was a round logo behind the subject's head in the picture...it was on the other side of her head from the
earring. Something like it was a picture of a large sand sculpture with detail but the sand sculpture did not seem to be the entire point, the photo showed more of the beach so the sculpture got lost in the picture, you had to hunt for it but it matched the beach sand, that seemed to be the point, that type of thing. It was an ad so not done for a joke...
