Example text

Nobody who is informed believes anymore that a photograph is just a literal representation of reality. Along with power comes danger If you have any doubts about this, consider that a photograph, like a perspective drawing, is a two-dimensional encoding of a three-dimensional scene. Through a trick like that of sleight of hand, our brains have internalized the conventions of vanishing point perspective, and visually read the scenes in many photos as though they have three dimensions. Even apart from this literal sense in which a two-dimensional photo can never actually be reality, photos have been used to alter and disguise reality since long before the birth of Photoshop.

Learning to harness the power inherent in photographic composition. ◼ Understanding that less is sometimes more. That which is implied but unseen can have much more power in an image than that which is explicitly rendered. ◼ Listening to yourself. Often the first idea is the best idea, and we lose focus and dilute our creativity by being reluctant to listen to ourselves and trust ourselves. So learn to listen to your inner voice! ◼ Setting limits intentionally. There are many kinds of limits you can set for yourself in time, space, equipment, and subject matter (to name a few dimensions).
