|Do you normally photograph with a purpose already in mind, or do you let yourself go with the flow?
I usually have vision in my head prior the shoot after talking to a client, but I never put myself into specific frames. I Let my mind flow.
Sometimes based off of looking at what I'm taking a picture of, i get an idea of what I want the photograph to look like. Sometimes I just go with the flow. All depends if something pops into my head or not.
Locations are usually planned but what gets photographed depends on what catches my eye at the time.
My purpose is to always come out with atleast one picture of each subject that is amazing compared to the rest. Whether I capture this in the coloring of the picture or the subject itself, something about the picture of the subject needs to stand out to me.
I go with the flow when I take my photographs.
I think my above question kind of answered the question. 95% of the time i dont, 5% i do when i shoot total alien genre to me
I normally let myself go with the flow, and feed off the energy around me.
A bit of both
I like to do both. Having a purpose helps you take control of the situation. However, being free and letting events take their course can be helpful many times. So, I don't go to shoot and say 'come what may, we are not changing from plan.” I go out prepared, but my experience is that some of the most awesome shots come out of situations that you did not think about or intend. As a photographer, I only have to keep my eyes open to endless artistic possibilities.
I frequently visualise a photograph in advance, and then set out to achieve it.
For example, at the moment I am thinking about a close-up photograph of a bird, landing on a branch with its wings outspread ... but taken with a wide-angle lens to add width and drama, rather than the more usual telephoto.
That's going to take some setting up, with remote controls and the like. I'm working on it.
Having said that, I also carry my camera with me most places I go, and photograph 'on the fly' if an opportunity arises.
I let myself flow and let the moment control me
It would certainly depend what the job is. Usually a client has an idea in mind already, although yes, this can be combined with my own ideas, or if I'm struggling then I will go with the flow and learn as I go. If I'm photographing for personal benefit, I like to go with the flow. It allows me to start with a clean slate, whilst being in the situation. Then I can practice trying to learn and progress my skills in a time restricted situation.
I normally just go with te flow and see where the lens takes me
Business photography assignments always have a purpose, but I will always go with the flow if something unexpected happens.
Photography for pleasure is a mixture. Often I go with the flow, but sometimes I will have set out to find the image I have in my mind.
I always have a shot in mind, but after I get that, I let things flow. Mushrooms are a subject of opportunity that i have recently found interesting. I have not posted any picts of mushrooms yet, but I am dialing in what I want to share. Nature and landscape photography is as much about the serendipity as it is about the "one" shot. The bee on a blackberry flower, the tiger Lilly at the side of the path; it is all about being able to see the different possibilities.
