Photography Wisdom, The Creation & Construction Collection contains 10 great tips to improving your photography by understanding how you can go beyond just finding images to how to create them. Extracted from the 50 tip Photography Wisdom book, these ten tips concentrate on how we can use the tools photography gives us to be as creative as painters in building images that go beyond what we see in front of us. These tips include:
* Shoot Extras and With Variety
* Your Own Library
* Every Image Has a Story
* Strong Emotion Is Powerful
* Work With Many Levels
* Seek Out Peers
* Trust Yourself
* Produce for Yourself
* Think in Bodies of Work
Any one of these will improve your photography significantly if you apply it. All ten will really push your shooting to a new, higher level of achievement.
Photography Wisdom came about from my desire to take a series of tips for better photography I have been publishing on www.dimagemaker.com, expand on them and publish them in book form. Some people like and use online resources but others do not, and it seemed a shame to miss out on reaching such people. Plus the printed form (and even e-books) offers a different look and design layout options than a website does.
The tips come from my 35+ years of photography experience, from my passions of landscape, macro, collage and infrared photography to portraits, weddings, product shots and the odd bit of fashion. They also draw from my varied other interests and activities: helping people overcome creative blocks, teaching photography, art and computers at all levels of adult education, a passion for science, philosophy, spirituality and history, and much more. I find it constantly amazing that interests in one area will often yield insights in a completely different field.
