The Enthusiasts’ Greatest Weakness Is Knowledge
The Subject Is Only My Starting Point. Then I Ask – How Can I Transform It? – The Iceberg Analogy.
Above The Water – The Literal Approach To Photography.
Basic photography and retouching knowledge you can learn anywhere. The knowledge promoted by social media ‘experts’ and the internet. Record the subject with a tidy composition, then corrective retouching. Photography is primarily camera orientated. A literal mindset of making the pictures based on design. Not a creative mindset of making pictures based on interpreting your subject. Creativity requires: ‘ Not judging the scene in a literal way, but judging the creative potential of what it could become’. Literal pictures are simply the result of not knowing what more you can do to your picture.
Below The Water – The Artistic And Creative Knowledge.
The artistic and creative knowledge you CAN’T learn everywhere. My clients said, ‘ I don’t know, what I don’t know’. Understanding how viewers respond to pictures, then adding the artistic knowledge to know how to control the viewers’ response, is what clients didn’t know. All good pictures manipulate the viewer, in order to evoke an emotional response. Pictures remain literal because the subject is never seen as only raw material to create something greater. Then, not knowing the artistic principles or techniques that enable you to transform it, into something greater. The knowledge can be learned from painters, in the larger world of art. – The more artistic knowledge you have, the easier it is to see the creative potential in the subjects you shoot.
And, How Do You Create Your Own Unique Artistic Style?
It’s by transforming your picture that you create your own personal artistic style. Your own unique style emerges by applying your personal choices to every creative decision within the structured workflow. The wider creative knowledge below the surface is the key to solving your creative problems. That’s why my workshops are unique – its knowledge others don’t teach.
