This experiment proves that photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what's in front of it

Canon carried out an interesting experiment, when six photographers were asked to take pictures of one and the same man. The results were rather surprising.


Before the photo session, each photographer was told a different story about the man whose name is Mark. One was told Mark is a former alcoholic, the other – that the man is a millionaire and so on. In fact, the man is an actor.

After the photo session, the portraits were compared and it turned out, that the pictures depended a lot on the photograph’s attitude towards the object of photographing.

You may compare the pictures yourself and see that the man really looks different in each of them:


Commercial fisherman


Psychic


Former alcoholic


Man who saved somebody's life


Self-made millionaire


Former prisoner

Along a similiar line - a teacher was given a list of her student's locker numbers but thought they were their IQ's. You guessed it - the higher locker numbers got the higher grades !!

Interesting... However, one can relate to frame and intent given the title of each shot.. I feel to prove the statement we the quizzed should by multiple choice be able to select the intension. Not be told then shown the shot.

Thevonly reason photography is an art form is because he the photographer is shaping the image in their own perspective. Ansel Adams works arent picture of nature in b & w. They are uniquely timed framed and more importantly perseived by theartist.
