2. Absorption

A powerful photograph is one that awakens the senses of a viewer. You will have created a powerful photograph when viewers feel as though they are a part of an image. More and more photographers are resorting to high-tech photography gear to create immersive images. These images give an ultra-realistic view of the world by utilising never before seen perspectives and compositions. Needless to say, images that excite viewers drive deeper engagement.

3. Thought-provoking

Photographs speak a universal language. What makes an image powerful is its ability to evoke deep emotions and profound thoughts. A powerful photograph demonstrates a meaningful relationship and strikes a chord with the viewers. A recent trend in stock photography is the dissemination of culturally relevant messages such as diversity and inclusivity.
