Practice to see creatively


Article Excerpt: “Developing a creative eye is about seeing things in a different way; a personal visual opinion rather than obvious point of view…When we first use a camera we take pictures of all the obvious things around us…This is all a very necessary part of learning photography and after repeatedly taking these pictures, boredom starts to creep in. If we get bored enough, we tend to look further than the obvious for our photographic subjects, hopefully encouraging us to interpret these subjects in a different manner…The problem is that we all have pre-conceived ideas about how something should look, and that is what we photograph, so if we want to be creative we must drop these pre-conceptions, and start looking at things from a small child’s “innocence”…When you possess the ability to creatively “see”, you will never again have to worry about the problems encountered in photography or anything that may have to do with your camera equipment…Practice, practice, practice and apply everything you have learnt from photography to your shooting sessions. As they say, practice makes perfect…”~Ken Caleno from his article Learning to See Creatively
