THE INSPIRATION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Inspiration can be found everywhere; it largely depends on you and your openness to things around you, often things that you can easily overlook. Some people get ideas from the most mundane things. Others find inspiration in remote areas that only they work with or have access to. You simply have to pay attention to the things around you, things in your daily life, from your background, or even in your thoughts and dreams. The wedding photographer Belfast can get inspired from activities in his/her daily life, inspirations from literature, from music. Your inspirations will give birth to creativity in the world of photography.
HOW TO BRING CREATIVITY INTO PICTURES?
Creativity requires preparation and being knowledgeable, having interest in photography. The starting point in being creative is to have a sound knowledge in the field of photography. There are five requirements for creativity;
Desire: It’s hard to imagine anyone being creative in any field—science, business, art—without a desire to go further than anyone else has gone, to dig deeper, and to come up with new insights. Creativity implies doing something new that has never been done before, and doing anything new is difficult. You can be influenced, stimulated, and inspired by others, but it’s unlikely you’ll be pushed or forced into truly creative ventures by anyone other than you as creative efforts are usually accomplished alone, or within a very small circle of collaborators.
Thoughts: the wedding photographer Belfast who wishes to be creative must think through to the end before any photographic session. This will help you to be in control of the event and enable you to easily control and situation that might crop out in the event.
Experimentation: Any time you’re trying something new and different, you’re experimenting. Creativity requires some experimentation. If you don’t experiment with some new approach, some new way of seeing, some new way of thinking, you’re probably not creating any new imagery. You’ve got to explore new ways of thinking, new techniques, or new materials or equipment. If you don’t, you are simply reinventing the wheel and will get nowhere on the road toward creativity. It’s easy to lay back and work the same way you’ve worked in the past in situations that are similar to those you’ve previously encountered, knowing that the result will be successful.. Experimentation often ends up in failure. That’s to be expected. However, it’s worth trying and failing at least a few times before you hit something successful. The problem is that most people hate failure so much that they’ll do anything to avoid it, including staying in the same rut that they consider success. But just consider this: when you fail at a photograph, you’re probably the only person who will know it.
Inner Conviction: You may be hesitant to go where you haven’t gone before. This can only be overcome with an inner conviction that going there is simply okay. You may need encouragement from others. You may be able to do it yourself. But one way or another you must have the inner conviction to move forward, even in the face of disapproval from others. You have to believe in yourself and in what you’re doing.
