Steve McCurry's One-Minute Masterclass 'What Makes A Great Photograph'



Steve says it like it is as usual. For me great photography comes down to making images that change people's view of the world. This can range from a subtle increase in awareness, to altering someone's opinion, through to causing a change in behaviour.

The 7 steps on the journey for the viewer of a great photograph are:

  1. seeing the image
  2. experiencing a sensation
  3. which turns into an emotion
  4. that evokes a cognitive process
  5. leading to a shift in understanding
  6. and a change in attitude
  7. that motivates the viewer to take action.

I'm not a psychologist or a philosopher. This is just my observation based on experience.

Till soon,
Paul
