  • Photography Control
    • Visual Control
      • Aperture
        • A shallow depth of field can make an image feel more intimate, as the only focus is on one thing, in many cases, a face.
        • If the background is fully in focus, it allows the viewer to see all that's in shot, therefore giving them the control to see what they want to.
      • Lighting
        • The more light in an image, the more the audience can see, so the more control they have.
        • The lighting used in an image changes the mood.
      • Cropping
        • The crop of an image, allows the viewer to see as much or as little as the photographer chooses.
        • A technique used to keep control with the photographer, is cropping out features that show expression, e.g. the face/eyes.
    • Other Control Factors
      • Expessions
        • Models that look agressive or confrontational to not allow the viewer to feel in control of an image.
        • Different facial cues can give the viewer hints as to how the model 'feels'.
          • for example; wide open eyes, give a cue for openness and vulnurability, whilst 'sqwinting' gives the impression of aggression or anger.

        • Styling
          • If the styling of an image gives a lot away about a character then the viewer may feel more control than if the model remains 'mysterious'.
        • Relationships
          • There may be relationships portrayed in images, these  can either enhance or detract from the control of the viewer.
          • The way a relationship is shown, changes the way the viewer will percieve it.
