I always think when I read a book that the author’s style is like that of the photographer or the artist. The book is their vision of the world. The book is their vision of what makes a great photograph and how they want their work to be received.
This seems to be true for photography, but not for painting. Painting is essentially taking a camera and applying a style to it. The camera’s job is to capture the world and make it look as beautiful as possible, but the style of the painting is often very much on the artist’s choice of color and tonal range. The style of a painting can be very personal and influenced by what the artist sees as the most pleasing expression of the world’s beauty.
What a painter might decide to do with a photograph is a personal choice. However, the tone and style of a painting is usually dictated by the style and aesthetic of the person who made the painting. For example, a painter who paints in a style like the “New York School” might choose a bright, sunny color palette and tone for their work. However, a painter who creates a more subdued style might work in a more pastel palette and tone, using more muted colors.
When you look at the pictures you’ve seen with your eyes, they seem to have been created with a certain feel and color palette. A person or camera might decide these portraits should feel different without your input. Your eyes, though, are not like that. If you look at a person’s eyes with your eyes, it’s not like you’re able to change the color or tone of the eyes.
You can do that, but it takes practice. For example, I have a friend that paints the portraits of his loved ones, only he paints them in a more modern style. He gets to see his subjects in a more artistic way. He lets the subjects have more personality without trying to alter the look of the portraits. I think he is a lot more effective than a painter who uses his camera.
I’ve talked to a number of people who are more adept at painting than photographing. It is one of the most fun crafts I’ve ever had to learn, and my friend and I have been able to work together in this way for awhile. But I want to share one of my favorite things I’ve learned from photography, and that is to take pictures of people who are not the average Joe.
Photography is a great tool for capturing the personality of the people you are photographing, but it is also a very powerful tool for communicating ideas. For instance, I recently worked on a poster for my school’s photo club. I wanted to do something interesting with the photo, but one of the best things I could do is incorporate the personality of the person I was photographing into the picture itself.
Using photography as a medium to show people how they truly feel about something is an easy way to communicate your ideas. Of course, like all mediums, photography is a tool for communicating ideas, but it can also be used to show people how you feel about things.
Like most artists, I’ve always loved seeing pictures of my friends. They were always more or less the same, in a sense that they were always the same age and had the same hairstyle and personality. What I’ve always been trying to communicate is the real person behind the photo. Through the use of photography, I can show people how I feel about them and hopefully communicate a little about who I am as a person.
This is one of those situations where its important to remember that there is no correct way to communicate. A picture is just a picture. No one can take them and turn them into a person. If you want to show someone how you feel about them, you can tell them they have a certain personality and then take pictures of them from a different angle, but that’s all they are going to see.
