Hu - Mosaic is a style of photography that incorporates the original idea of mosaics with human nature. The mosaic concept involved the much larger picture or object being build from many different pieces. A Hu-Mosaic take relatively normal photography or picture an introduces the Human Nature to display and feeling, through, or event. The mosaic always involves at least a single subject, person, repeated performing different activities. These types of pictures usually consist a blank frame which is void of any subject matter. The photographer then places the subject in the desired pose and takes a snaphot. This step is repeated for each of the poses selected by the artist. Once all of the pictures are taken and reviewed the photographer utilizes software to merge the images in a single image representing the desired effect. It is important that once the key frame has been shot that the came is not moved or altered. The best way to eliminate this use aperture of 8 or higher,a remote trigger, and live view. The picture above started out as a dull blank living room. By adding a subject in PJ's in various different poses, like sleeping, pondering, and using the computer, the theme starts to take shape. This image's name is "out sick". It demonstrated the various activities of one person's day while out sick. Preparation for these types of photographs takes some time and thought. First you want to start with a concept, then chose a background or key frame, lastly you need to pick the perfect subject(s) and poses. It is best to write down or white board your thoughts before venturing out to shoot one. It is possible to the be the photographer and the subject if you use a remote shutter release. So the next time you are looking for a good art piece or something fun to do, try one.
