Let me out (DSC2673)

This photo was ranked amongst the "World's Best Photo of Malaysia"

For example, rats naturally prefer dark spaces. If shock is delivered while a rat is in a dark place, it can be made to fear the dark and "choose" to avoid dark places in future.

 

I often think a lot about contradictory theories like this one. In photography darkness is always portrayed as unpleasant. But lets not forget darkness can also be asociated with relaxing ambiance, old, antique, dreamy and many more comforting ambiance. Photographers should be able to project such "feelings" through their work. Well those are just some of my thoughts on how behavioral science can play a big part in photography.
