Photo Harmony Definition

PHOTO HARMONY

The Category

The Photo Harmony category is designed to enable applicants to demonstrate their skills
in the production and visual progression of images linked to sound. No words or story
with a specific beginning, middle and ending are required. The emphasis is on matching
the images with appropriate transitions and harmonising them with the sound.

The Standard

There should be evidence in the photography of sound artistic and technical skills. The
selection, quality and sympathetic progression of the images is the prime factor being
assessed; the appropriateness and recording quality of the soundtrack will also be taken
into account.
Evidence of a developing personal style is desirable.

Techniques

The purpose of this category is to display a set of images which harmonise with each
other and with the sound used. The sequence should be constructed so that images
progress harmoniously in terms of colour or tone and graphic design. The category is not
designed to display images which may be excellent when considered individually but
which fail to harmonise with each other and with the sound chosen. It is the norm that
the sound and the images start and finish together. Where music is used, it is
recommended that the original ending of the music is preserved rather than an arbitrary
fade-out.
As with all techniques, digital manipulation can easily be overdone and result in an
effect counter-productive to the author’s intentions. Such modifications should be well
matched to the overall concept being communicated by the images.
