On Grain & Picture Rendering

He who has the time to zoom into a picture at 100% magnification, does not have time to shoot creative pictures with aesthetically pleasing images.

A shooter whom is concentrating on the flow and rhythm of his ideas as firstly a concept in his mind, then watching them come to life through a camera does not have time to discuss or debate megapixel counts and noise in photos as he is too busy creating art that he manifests as a reflection mirroring his mind.

A creative shooter does not have the time energy or interest in debating the grain, noise, cropping, size or dimension of pictures as these are the effect of the cause. They offer no insight into a picture, just as symbols or words on the paper are not the music or book.1000 Days in Paris-1-3

You’ll find a creative shooter has little to say about pictures, as words take away their true meaning. He is absorbed in the reflections of the image which resonate in his mind, as the picture is a deep thing, a magical thing, which reflects its idea into the minds of the recipient if she is able to observe.

A creative shooter does not have time to debate things in photographic forums nor give advice on cameras, he learns by the fire of experience, thus, gaining true knowledge.

A creative shooter takes no advice, just as he gives no advice as these are a waste of his energy, which he coils up as a spring to be released with a burst of creativity from his mind through the camera. 

Any comments about photos, are taken, good and bad with the same degree of equanimity. The true and only question the shooter asks is, has my idea manifested as it should, and if so, it is good, if not, to use as a springboard to remove any obstacle in this process.

Above all else, a creative shooter does not follow, he never repeats another’s idea. He creates from writhing out, simultaneously and sequentially bouncing his ideas through time.

Comments Regarding Street Photography

Even though I find much of the work I see as totally distasteful, horrible, and invasive, by self styled street photographers – I don’t agree or accept judgments on why things should or should not be a certain way, because that is exactly what they are, judgments.

Particularly when people have a pre-disposition that they are weighing things against, and therefore judging the status quo from.

If we are following a projection of someone else’s idea’s then we will be in a position where we judge everything else from this limited viewpoint.

Bottom line, I see many people are just copying and regurgitating someone else’s work. We need to be careful in alienating entire genre’s of people, perhaps they are moving through this and searching for their own style, in the end ‘this’, is what it’s all about.

Keep shooting,
Jeremy
