Hitchcock, the master of… composition!

If you’re reading this blog then you’re familiar with Hitchcock’s iconic movies, but what was it that made them stand out amongst all the others?

Elisa Crossing gave a incredible presentation at Monday’s Life Drawing to bring our attention to the composition of Hitchcock’s images, the use of a doorway to frame a scene and the character’s position relative to the doorway to imply entrance, exit, past or future.  The clever use of a character silhouetted by a brighter background and the placement of a prop to draw the viewer’s attention and provide a narrative for the image.

How can you apply these techniques to your images?

Elisa has kindly offered to share her noted from the presentation, click here to download.
