Why do so many photographers think it’s their duty to make you feel less than you are for wanting to see how others do their thing???
Are we not visual people by nature? So wouldn’t it make sense that our best form of learning and absorbing would come from seeing how others do things? I believe that there is an unbalanced emphasis on finding your own voice (which of course is very important) but not enough on truly learning and understanding the craft of portraiture.
Today I’m sharing my own personal journey from copycat, to emulator to even eventually a little bit of innovation. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comment section below!
Love the BACKDROP? We do, too! It’s Spangled, from the fabulous Drop it Modern!
