“Its not the Destination, It’s the journey.”
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……..
- Is photography an art or a craft?
- How have women influenced photography from both sides of the lens?
- The effect of lighting in the photography.
- How to produce the best photography – angles, and approaches.
- Photography verses painting – emphasizing the natural aspect of the view.
- How has macro photography evolved in the world?
- What is the importance of nature photography?
- How can photography be used to educate people who have a negative attitude towards nature?
