I was experimenting the other day on this:
I took my mp3 player, filled it with classical music, mainly classical music, especially those from the romantic period and the early 20th century music and took my camera out to shoot yesterday. I put my headphones on and turned up the classical music. I sat down for 5 minutes and closed my eyes to listen to the music intently (For the classical musicians here like me, I was listening to Debussy's Reflets dans l'eau) then after that open my eyes and started to look around. I found out that with the classical music on, I looked at an environment that seemed so bland in a different view. Is it the music that made it like this?
Oh, and if this works, the perfect music for shooting sinister type pictures would be Carl Orff's 'O Fortuna' from Carmina Burana. For those who don't know this, go and see those horror film trailers and this music is definitely there!
Could music have an effect on my photography?
