Photos are only a part of photography, but you have to enjoy the process of photography
In the early stages of my photography, I was very concerned about whether the photo was “art”. Every time I pick up the camera, I am full of anxiety, thinking that I need to capture the “masterpieces” of the retention era. But I must tell you that reality always backfires. So one of the most important lessons I have learned over the years is not to worry too much about the end result. On the contrary, I learned to enjoy and trust the process of shooting.
For me, the process of photography usually starts from a thought Or a “image in the heart” started. For example, when I have a very specific outline of the scene content in my mind, I have the desire to create, but I usually think from several aspects. The first aspect is: what theme do I need, do I need a specific shooting location, a specific object, a specific color composition or light type? Moreover, if my ideas are more “director”, do I need to look for or find certain types of characters in my life?
The next aspect is more practical: what do I need device of? Does this photo require an unusual camera, lens and lighting? Do I need a team or is my “self-sufficiency” enough?
Next, I imagined and thought about the final image into a film, and further thought about whether this image requires a different post-processing method? Usually this issue will be involved after the actual shooting, so you don’t have to think too much before shooting.
Besides, other thoughts are more personal. Do I want an open composition or a blank composition for the image I want to shoot? Because different compositions imply different states. If I am shooting a very specific image, do I need to portray many details? . . . . . . In general, I need to keep my eyes and my heart open to all possibilities.
Actually, the work of artists is not to criticize their own work. It simply “creates works.” For the work of a photographer, or any work that requires the application of creativity, all you do is pursue sensory yearning. I found that if I follow this series of creative processes, then I don’t have to worry about the obstacles I often set up before. Finally, I believe that the job of an artist is to pick up a paintbrush or a camera to create.
Life is learning how to live in a comfortable situation. Life is learning when to be trusted and when to be vigilant.
I will never shout “I need to be a great artist today!” On the contrary, I learned to trust and follow my creative process. I not only learned to pay attention to the results, but also learned to appreciate the scenery outside the window during the journey. I believe that if I follow this process, I will often create something valuable.
