About "Learning to see":
"Don’t worry about being better than anybody you know personally or whose
work you admire. Simply try to be better tomorrow than you were
yesterday. You are not so much in competition with others as you are
with yourself. Be your own toughest critic. Show only your best and
develop your self-editing abilities so you know just what your best is.
Beyond that,..., I’d suggest
not spending all your time looking at other photographers but to look at
other artists, painters, in particular, painters throughout the
centuries. See how they take space and divide it, portion it out; how
they capture your eye and attention with their use of a given space.
How you put your pictures together is what will separate you from
others, not in any revolutionary way, but in the way you draw or do not
draw a viewer in to your pictures. It’s not rocket science and it’s
not necessarily even a craft now that digital imaging making prevails,
but it can be an art."William A. AllardAbout Artists:
I'm a man, a husband, a father, and a product manager most of the day.
The rest of my time I want to use my skills of photography to show others the beauty of the world as I see it!
About my photography:
If you would ask my what my style is,
than I would answer probably, that I don't have one specifc style.
And after two or three years thinking and searching about my style
I think I go with Guy Tal which written this wonderful article about
which simply says "Forget about personal style, forget unique vision
and"The most meaningful art you can make should not be about visual effects
but about the way you respond to and interpret the world"
Some of my images are romantic, some moody, some dark, some tell about life, the streets or the seasons and some are abstract work or minimalistic.As a poet does not concentrate on one form of poems , I don't want to concentrate on one form of images or mood.
If anything I would say I'm a visual poet which show his inner truth, his inner interpretation of the world around - this is the connection between my images and subjects.
As mannifold as the forms of
poetry as mannifold my images are.
