So while there is an unwritten language that influences us, not all images are entirely truthful or honest. The above photo is really an ad for a television series. I don’t even know which show, but they cleverly didn’t reveal what it was.
When we’re out shooting I always suggest slowing down to see what’s going on around you. You don’t really need to chase photos that often. They often appear right in from of your eyes.
As well, it’s good to stop and have a look at the photos that we didn’t choose have come into our field of vision. The only way that we can gain an understanding of the images around us is to look at them with a critical eye.
We shouldn’t be looking at photos to provide Truth. In an upcoming newsletter I will be writing and photography and the idea of belief. When we think of something as true, it is because we believe.
I look forward to your comments, questions and experiences on abstract photography. Let’s dialogue!
