Thoughts about Photography

What makes a photo really stunning for yourself and your audience? This is a question every photographer would face if you are interested to get better at photography then creating average snapshot images.

I try to answer that in my own words: It’s like telling a story, creating a poetry, creating emotions with a special look or ambience, catching a short moment which is rare to see and making a good composition out of it, to stage something and having a good scenery behind it, getting in touch with other people and creating a good mood, create a new perspective from things which is contrary to what you see on your daily routine, have an eye and feeling about design, art, colors, details, light, ambience and interesting things which you will find everywhere around you, being patient for the right moment, being patient for the right light, show details you won’t even notice or think about it, play with your camera as it would be a painting tool, don’t think about your equipment but think about creating a picture that you would like to see years later again and it still feels stunning, you like it to be creative and it’s fascinating and a passion at the same time, you care about high image quality or you use image quality as a tool, you like to know about everything around it, shoot as many things as possible when you’re traveling around as you won’t get a second chance (no, this is not about creating a million images in a week but to catch something special which you won’t see in a certain amount of time again), make a picture as if you would paint a picture, make a picture as if you would be a director or producer of a movie. I think there is many more stuff which i’m not yet aware of it…

And practically it’s not that easy as describing it with words. I believe most photographers and professionals are reviewing hundreds of photos before making a decision of what they want to keep or present (that depends also from what your are actually shooting or interested in). I didn’t read much books about photography yet but i like to study other pictures from other photographers which are stunning. You can learn a lot out of it from the best ones or from photographers that have the ability to communicate character to their pictures. You need to be self-critical with your own work. Always have a open mind of how other people are commenting or rating your photos but without loosing your faith about your own creativity. Don’t shoot photos only to please other people as you would loose all the fun and enthusiasm about it. Ask yourself why photography is your main part of interest. Don’t get irritated if people take a strange look at you about what you’re doing on the streets, on a place, in a room or everywhere else. Don’t get confused about camera equipment. It doesn’t matter if you’re using a Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Olympus, Sony, Panasonic or even the iPhone - what matters is your picture and if you feel comfortable and pleased with your own equipment. Get familiar with your own equipment and learn what you can do with that tool. Don’t give up or be frustrated if hundreds of your photos aren’t it worth to be published as long as you find a few ones which are exceptionally good from that project or album. Every single positive rating or comment about your photo is a huge motivator and proofs that you can’t be that wrong.

Maybe i need to continue this topic here but it was important to write that down. Is this a good starting point to get better at photography? I would like to hear from anybody sharing his personal thoughts.

Kind Regards
Jorge

Introduction
My Name is Jorge Pino Garcia de las Bayonas and i am from Spain. I am a Hobby Photographer living in Bern, Switzerland. I started in November 2013 using a DSLR (Digital single-lens reflex Camera) because my interest was growing for more serious photography, more focal length and better image quality. My first camera was the big Polaroid (One Step Flash) model around 1988 when i was a kid. I love art, design, atmosphere, nature and animals. Good pictures are inspiring and fascinating me. Photography enables you to discover the world around you in many creative ways. I am always interested to meet other people which are sharing their passion for photography.

You can find my photos on Flickr and 500px.
Thank you and have a good time!
