Learning to See Creatively
To develop a creative eye is to see things in a different way; A personal opinion rather than a clear visual perspective.
When we first use a camera, we take pictures of all the obvious things that surround us, monuments, people we know, pets, Uncle George, etc. This is a much needed part of learning photography and after taking these pictures over and over again, boredom begins to infiltrate.
If we miss enough, we tend to look beyond the obvious for our photographic subjects, we hope we encourage them to interpret these issues in a different way – but, as we often see, some people continually take boring images until they become Experts in this regard.
The problem is that we all have the preconceived ideas about how to look at something, and that’s what we photograph. So if we want to be creative, we must abandon these preconceived ideas and start seeing things from the innocence of a child. “.
What would a worm look like?
Spend a day taking pictures every day with a height of 600 mm to 800 mm, how a small child could see.
Isolate part of a global scene, using the camera viewfinder.
Show things like they normally do not look like.
Use the light in a creative way, to show the texture.
Give encouragement or create silhouetted shapes.
Use landscape telephoto, wide-angle lenses for portraits.
Take photos in the sun.
Take photos by jumping in the air.
Set the horizons where you want.
After a while, creative vision becomes as natural as breathing, and when this happens, you can concentrate on capturing the moment:
The peak of action.
A fleeting glance.
Some lighting conditions.
Learn all the “rules” of the composition and then see how you can break it while communicating powerful images. Try not to focus on the place of interest, rather than focusing on the form or form. Decide what you want to highlight, what is the message you want to convey to the viewer.
Part of learning how to do creatively is the search for images in images. Try to view a scene through a 28mm wide-angle lens, and then go to a 100mm telephoto lens and see how many different pictures you can isolate in this scene.
When you have the ability to “see” creatively, you will never have to worry about problems in photography or anything that may affect your camera equipment. But how do you know when you have reached the level of being an “A-1″ Lens person, with the ability to see things from a photographic point of view? ”
Practice, practice, practice and apply what you have learned from photography for your photography sessions. As they say, the practice is perfect, and as I say:
“Perfect practice makes perfect.”
