‘Art is not what you see but what you make others see.’
Creativity starts with the question, ‘What if?’ That is what separates great photographers from everyone else; the ability to doubt and challenge and then take one step further – to embrace possibility and potential.
Making a good image isn’t about knowing all the answers. It’s about making joyful discoveries in exploring solutions to challenges and problems.
When we create an image, we reveal a lot about ourselves. Beyond simply displaying our skill level and technical abilities, the images we capture provide insights into our personalities, moods and our ever-evolving interests.
Imagination is one of the most important components in the process of making impressionist photographs. It not only provides ideas and inspiration, but also gives you the unshakable confidence that you need in your image-making process.
When I think of expressive photographs, I think of all those artists who decided to use their imagination, techniques and composition to create their images. They are artists who “invented” images in a style that is highly personal and subjective. They are not afraid to breaks all the rules, and no one opinion stopped them in their artistic pursuits.
Have you ever experienced the simple pleasure of looking at a beautiful image and feeling your heart respond and your soul wake up? I have felt this way ever since I discovered impressionist photography.
When I began my love affair with impressionist photography I concentrated on different techniques. I believed if I mastered a technique I would produce a good image. I practised the various ways that I had read about in many different books, trying to produce interesting effects. I purchased different lenses and used many different accessories. Mastering the tricks and skills was simple and fun, but no matter how well I used them, I didn’t produce truly satisfying, personal statements. It took many photo-shoots for me to realise these tricks were simply techniques, and in order to become a better and more creative artist, what I needed to explore and understand was something more than just knowing how to use my camera.
