I’m taking an online photography class Traveling Light. The instructor recently observed.
As for personal style while cultural/visual differences are certainly a big part of what makes travel exciting, if we focus solely on these external differences when we shoot, our photography can tend to look more cliched and random a portfolio that appears to be shot by many different photographers.
The phrase a portfolio that appears to be shot by many different photographers keeps echoing through my thoughts. Indeed as I review my collections of photographs with one exception they do have that appearance. Rather than being a flow of visual thought, the images are groups of non-sequiturs.
It’s time for reflection.
