Off-planning a photo subject

P1000207%2B%25281%2529.jpg


Find your subject. Be focused. Concentrate your effort. In brief don't improvise! Is it true? Is it the real inspiration? Or it is more redundant and less provocative? That's maybe the real factor...

What is creativity if not doing something out of the usual path of thinking and be free to improvise something that exceed the precoder limit imposed by the other's frozen mind. Because in fact although the algorithm of all images from the past is interesting and can be inspiring for certain, it is also a closed store of imagination that justify its dogmatism by saying wrongly that everything has been already done and is now repeated in this today world.

Choosing a starting point, for example a subject, is in fact a way to motivate a new search and open a blank page that has to be written, sketched or registered. Every time it can offer a new perspective if we accept to explore the subject without (too much) pre-conceptions or pre-perceptions that are stopping our creativity. In visual art such as photography is, there is an esthetic to be found in every different subject and which can easily exceed its traditionally known profile.

Each new moment in our brief life has its own particularities. But its uptake (freeze moments) can be challenging for the observer like us. And as we want to transmit this diversity of views perceptions, it tends to vanish instantly. We have to train ourselves to be ready and pre-perceptive of what is happening and be able to participate to the endless flux of life. Because photography is a way to register a moment (action) in the chain of life.

At the end the photographer is the center subject of its contextual surrounding which will define the originality of its own personal perception. Creativity is a fragile thing, a kind of flower of your mind. And this beauty is not really appreciated by many of us that live a gray life because they are submerged by the overwhelming pathologic search of their physical and psychologic security. But it happens that somebody, somewhere, sometime will indeed open its mind and be emotively involved by our work. This why you must persist in your life search, it a human duty!

Good luck with all that. Way too complicated for me.

Surely improvisation is the mother of creativity.

I like that statement.  Photography is my attempt to bring colour and stop my life being too grey, even if it is only tacking a shot or two on my way to or from work.

Thank you. As you have rightly said, photography is part of your way of life and express your creativity everyday.

 

Have a good day, Daniel M
