Jared Tyler is a 19 year old photographer who expresses his feelings and emotions through photography, much like Christopher Hopkins but with a wider variety of feelings. I feel i can relate more to this photographer due to him being a young artist and with certain images of his i feel it visually expresses how i and many other people feel. For example, this image below.
I know i’m not the only one to feel like they’re drowning when being phoned, but i feel that this image is clear on its narrative and can be very relatable to most of its viewers.
This inspires me to also become an expressive photographer, expressing my emotions through a visual aid. but i don’t want it to be just my emotions and thoughts. I want people to relate, to understand , to know they’re not the only one. It’s easy to think you’re alone, but you’re really not. Even the craziest of thoughts and feelings are shared with many others around the world.
He has some beautiful images that are pleasing to the eye whilst at the same time showing reality, what really happens, how it really feels.
Not all of his images need heavy photoshopping, he has a variety of styles for a variety of narratives.
In my FMP i aim to create the same kind of feeling, i want people to enjoy the image in an artistic manor but also be able to understand how it feels. Even if they can’t relate, if they could at least understand then they would see the true feelings behind the image and have a better understanding of how it feels. Even if i use beautiful warm colours like the image above, the narrative could easily be something cold, creating an emotional contrast in the image.
Using a contrast of dull and vibrant colours could help you achieve a variety of feelings in your images, not necessarily happy nor sad.
