Studium is the element that initially gets your attention. It can be Colors, a cool Background, a pose, really anything. But the punctum is what Roland describes as the thing that “pricks or bruises.” It’s that rare detail that makes the viewer feel something and pushes the photo even further. The punctum can be an object or expression on someone’s Face, something you wouldn’t naturally expect that makes the image more effective.
A punctum can be anything. If you are looking for ideas try going to through a magazine and looking at random objects then adding that element into one of your photos. Consider what this object could symbolize and how it will change your image to create a narrative .
Have you used this same idea without realizing it? What are some other artists that use a punctum?
