Working on a new word – photARTgrahpy – where & when #art & #photography come together, collaborate and become more than before.
My frequent philosophical statement is that photographers capture the moment and artists create the moment. At the point and shoot frequently and often method of photography, I have always taken too many pictures with the hopes of capturing that one that has the best moment. With some genres – candid people, sports, animals in nature, this is all true. But work can be done on composition, depth of field control and other techniques to improve the moment of capture. Other times, the thoughtful composition will create the art that is present.
To take great pictures study great art.
