This website explores the creative variables of photography, one at a time, to see how each works.

Explore this site any way you like: click a navigation item at the left to open up a topic, or click the photos above to jump in at random. There is also a help page on using the comparison pages, which are fun but slightly tricky at first, specially on phones and tablets.

I taught photography and wished there was a site like this, so I developed this one. I used a single subject — a woman named Nicole Pierce — for almost every image, so there is consistency as we look at creative options.
