|How do you choose your subjects?
by inspiration or when had a glass of wine or two.
I use to pre-plan, but now I just go with what I find. I use it to challenge myself.
I have begun to do self-assignments by which I find ordinary items and try to make them extraordinary just by sheer camera and lighting techniques.
I'm not sure I really choose the subject...it more or less presents itself and I take what I see to task.
Creativity is the major and the hardest tool in my profession. Creativity is something “invisible” but it can be improved with time and work. On the other hand, technique depends on the amount of time spent studying and practices. Creativity requires a different approach, a work towards developing new ideas. And I found Life to be the source of all these ideas, all artists’ nymph.
Nowadays we have a flood of information made available by TV, magazines, books, film, theatre, and internet. They all give us the opportunity to experience many feelings, making us more aware of the life around us. Personally I can’t say that I have a “one” way of finding my inspiration, because Life is multiple and I am still learning how to read its different signs.
I partly identify with Dadaism. It defends that the path for creation is a spontaneous event, depending on your personal state of mind in a particular moment and the environment around you. An idea for a project can happen at any time, whether I’m with friends, or working, or sitting in the tube on yet another busy day at London. And so it can happen days before the shooting day, or sometimes it can even take place in that same day. But that is just the gateway, the toughest work comes after: to make that idea possible.
My most important guideline is Light, and it is the strongest element in my creation process. To me is the ability to work Light that makes a good photographer.
Lol! They often choose me!
For nature and landscapes, its mostly by traveling and doing my research.
For portraits and weddings, my clients choose me and I'm very thankful that they do!
Hopefully, the examples on my website will help you to choose me, too!
My subjects are picked by my clients. It is how they are shot that makes a difference.
The ones I choose, I select because of unsual features. I am defnitely never looking for the average.
I find willing models who I feel are unconventionally beautiful
Clients choose me.
Perhaps the subject chooses me... but as for what makes me press the shutter release is that instant when all of the right elements are gathered and there is balance in the composition.
I choose my subjects on instinct. If a person has an interesting face, regardless of whether it is classically beautiful or not, I enjoy shooting them.
That's an evolutionary process.
I shoot in a documentary style. Recently I have begun teaching teens interdisciplinary photography classes; now I have greater access to new social groups and people.
