Break Through The Noise

In a new video produced in partnership with JPEGmini, Colby Brown talks about how to break through the noise with your images.

In a world that is over-saturated with imagery, how do you make photos that can stand out, have impact and do more than exist as a snapshot to be forgotten when the next snapshot takes its place? Brown describes how to create imagery that is more engaging and has a purpose. How to put the viewer on a path to fill in the story with their own experiences. These are the photos and video clips that make a viewer pause and think. These are the visual stories that capture the imagination and engage with viewers beyond your own circle of followers.

The video was shot and edited by a one man show, Eitan Sarid Souroujon from Isreal. It was shot on a Sony α7S II camera taking advantage of S-log 2 for most of it. Brown and Souroujon both worked together on their vision for the piece when they were on the ground in Iceland after one of Brown’s photo workshops there in March. The narrative message aside, the video is beautifully shot and edited and well worth watching for the visuals alone.
