30 Great Examples of Emotive Photography

2

Powerful images send emotional messages – even when no words are expressed. Humans carry the unique capability to share and demonstrate emotions, so capturing striking emotions through photography always has a tendency to strongly draw an audience in. If you are a photographer interested in taking emotional or emotive photographs, whether for your own use or as part of a design for posters, booklet printing, or a website, the following collection may help provide you with some ideas. These photos include images that capture a broad range of emotions from anger to fear to pain and joy.

What are the elements of each shot that make it so powerful? Is it the subject or the surroundings? How does the color treatment of the photo help or hurt the effect? What emotion do you believe the photographer is attempting to convey? Do you think that these emotions are strongly dependent upon culture? These questions and others are important to ask yourself as you study these images.
