|Do you normally photograph with a purpose already in mind, or do you let yourself go with the flow?
Definitely go with the flow. Some days are successful, others not. Hey ho.
Always with a purpose in mind.
Have ideas but definitely go with the flow, you have to!
It used to be about going with the flow in what now seems like a fairly reckless and cavalier manner, but thesedays I like to be a bit more organised: if it's a long-term project I'm working on I'll scribble pages of notes and make sketches of what I'm looking for. It rarely works out like this, however, and I think at heart I'm someone who has to react to a situation as it's happening. When I'm taking Polaroid photographs, though, I tend to be a great deal more critical and slow-moving than when I'm using a digital camera.
...a bit of this...a dash of that
Both..if the customer has ideas we start from there, and than let the flow go..
Normally I let my creativity flow in the moment, however there are times that an artistic direction and plan need to be in place in order to create a concept and bring it to fruition. This is usually the case in more complex concepts that require a lot of preparation.
Everything is with the flow, you can pose someone but what if that's not natural for them, then you might as well got a mannequin
I typically want to have 1 or 2 strong ideas that are well-thought out and planned, then once those are in the can, we let loose and go with the flow. Many times it is impossible to prepare fully, so being able to think quickly in a pinch and lead with confidence is a vital skill.
Go with the flow. You'll find the purpose along the way
I enter every [organised] shoot with one preconceived image I want to capture, once I get that image I have been involved with the subject for a little time and have ideas forming naturally, from then on I go with the flow. I tend to find that often the latter images work as well if not better than the preconceived one.
Again, it depends on the work. With weddings I tend to follow the flow, but I already know what that is going to be and I am ready for it. With art, I can't really know what you're going to do, but it comes with constant shooting and trusting myself and my creativity.
I think I'm more of go with the flow. That's where spontaneity is. The random creative. But for client shoots, yes it's important that you have the stuffs composed in your mind already.
I always have a few setup I know I want to get, but often it develops during the session.
