“Its not the Destination, It’s the journey.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

I have started to think about which direction I would like to take my studies and development as a photographer. There are many aspects of photography I could consider, its hard to know where to start.

Start with what you know and research!

So what do I know, it doesn’t feel like I know much right now but that’s why I’m doing this, to develop my passion and profession. I know I love nature and macro photography, it’s like seeing something for the first time. I want my research to hold my attention and develop me as a photographer. When I was studying my BA (Hons) I always started by looking at other artists who I found inspirational and try and imagine how I could do something different, which hasn’t been done before. I love the quote “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey” Ralph Waldo.

So how do I start this journey?

I need to reflect on what I have learned so far and how to take it and make it into something unique. I do know I want to find my own unique style of photography and to be able to share my ideas and vision through my photos.

Ideas so far……..

  1. Is photography an art or a craft?
  2. How have women influenced photography from both sides of the lens?
  3. The effect of lighting in the photography.
  4. How to produce the best photography – angles, and approaches.
  5. Photography verses painting – emphasizing the natural aspect of the view.
  6. How has macro photography evolved in the world?
  7. What is the importance of nature photography?
  8. How can photography be used to educate people who have a negative attitude towards nature?
