Post Card Series. As a photographer of people I’m often asked to bring back an exciting, unusual, attention getting portrait. After all photographs are the most important element in the design/readership equation of publishing. If the photograph is strong in content, catches the viewers eye, causing an emotional reaction to it, they’re more likely to read the accompanying story.
Humor is one of the best emotional hooks to catch. Don’t we all enjoy a good laugh?
