Identity & Branding, Print
The idea of the logo:
Photography, as an art form, is composed of various elements that come together to create a visually compelling image. These elements include focus, which is the sharpness or clarity of the subject, and out-of-focus techniques that add depth and dimension to the image. The photographer plays a critical role in organizing these elements, as they strive to capture and document important moments in a way that is both visually striking and emotionally resonant. By mastering the use of focus and out-of-focus techniques, a photographer can create images that are truly works of art.
