POFO.PRO – Poetics of Photography. Personal Blog, dedicated to the Technique and Art of Photography. Max Polyansky-Alekseev.


One of the photographer’s tasks is to simplify the image and bring the scene to its essence.
Sometimes this essence is colorless.

The photographer builds a frame, achieving unity of visible lines, shapes, backgrounds, and textures. The expressiveness and artistry of the image depends on their creative efforts, so it is important to understand the structure of the frame and know how it develops. A well-conceived composition by the author creates the integrity of all parts of the photo.

“I don’t really have the faintest idea about photography, but I’m shooting.”
