Focus is a key aspect to photography due to the way it can present emotion and connections from both the subject and the artist. Furthermore it brings attention to detail, colour and shape within the image through the focus or lack there of.
Within this image which I took myself I have seemingly concentrated on the idea of landscape focus which has allowed less detail being shown on the human subjects within the frame. This landscape itself is that of a New York City back drop. Through the allure of natural lighting coming from the landscape it provides a immediate focus which I intensified against the silhouettes of the models. Similarly to the work of Harry Callahan I have tried to collectively connect both human and landscape subjects through the intensive focus of the urban buildings and personal subject matters. The light exposure within the image has thus created outlines of the models rather than focusing on the detail, this allows more focus on their postures and how this can present emotion and connections to the landscape. Conclusively, I believe that focus within photography is a key aspect to providing meaning behind the subjects. However, much like the works of Harry Callahan the combination of both in and out focus creates attractions to both detail and meaning, through the focus on visual and physical detail like colour and pattern.
