Image Evaluation - Fun and Creative Photography (7:00 PM PDT)
Tonight' s theme is to have fun with your photos and come up with images that stand out from the crowd and wow with with their originality and creativity. "If you’re standing upright, pointing your camera at obvious subjects, from obvious perspectives, at obvious times the day, the resulting photographs will be nothing more than…obvious.Your photos will not differentiate themselves, as is the intentions of so many photographers.  Everyone wants ‘different’ images that catch the public’s eye. But many do not take this into consideration while out with their camera. Many more do take it into consideration, but let the perception of passers-by impact their willingness to get into a unique position from which to gain an interesting perspective, to implement that prop that’ll make the photo fun and unique, or to point the lens toward subjects most people walk by without notice.  If you’re standing upright, pointing your camera at obvious subjects, from obvious perspectives, at obvious times the day, Unless an unusual opportunity presents itself, you can assume that a photograph which is easy to obtain has already been taken by numerous other photographers. But, if you have to get down on the ground to find a unique view of the subject, or if you are sticking your lens out of the window of a cab who’s driver is eying you down in the rear-view mirror, chances are you’ll come away with something unique. Aside from potentially gaining an advantage over the army of other photographers ‘on the street,’ you’ll also fundamentally alter the way you view the world. After paying attention to different scenes, lighting, perspectives, textures, etc."       - Ryan Pendleton, Digital Photography School
