Photography offers a fascinating window into the world of art. Seeing the world around me from different viewpoints driven by curiosity and inquiry with various tools is an excellent way to discover new creativity in myself. Sometimes there is something right in front of me that I don't see, but taking an image it is reconfigured and transformed. Like Magic!
Usually, I come across some content by following magnetic artists as seen in museums, magazines and last but not least on social media. Thus, these discoveries may unknowingly kind of burn a mix of these bunch of art in my brain. How to choose not to copy these photographs, paintings or advertisements, but to create some art of my own?
How to change this natural trap? The answer is in selecting, editing d not, at last, revealing the main subject of the image. The real meaning. I try to look at my subject, then trusting my intuitions and trying out the various point of views. Trying to show what dreams and fears I can see, what motivations might lie beneath the surface. Creating an image in this way is not easy but doable. Seeing something alike and just capturing it in street photography is a matter of stubbornness, shooting a lot and a lucky smiling photographing God.
Sometimes I do the opposite what is advised. Going down blind alleys or places I don't want to be. Working hard, beeing stubborn, and eventually, I can get my ideas working. Sometimes they will show me a way to, at least in my opinion, fascinating photographs, and interesting photographs will lead to new ideas.
