    Default A photo reflects the photographer?

    Just as we see art paintings by famous artists in the past who used their paintings to convey not only a message, but their personal characters, personality, etc.

    Izzit possible for a photographer to portray his personality thru the type of shots he prefers (or typically) shoots?

    You have asked a very important question which often have been over looked by some enthusiastic photographers. Once you have past the basic and decided to move on you begin to find out more about yourself through the pictures you make.

    As a civilised member of the community the code of eliminating destructive criticism may be the first choice for you will be remembered the fine qualities that are found in your pictures.

    It will be great when each one of you share a piece of work that you like to give more encouragement.

    A photo reflects the unique style of a photographer. But it does not really mean it reflects the photographer.

    People with financial freedom are more fortunate, however they
    sometime forget to concentrate on making more pictures for the
    world to enjoy.

    In accepting what I am - just a cup of coffee in different situation
    allows me to create images that can evoke the viewer.



    -------------------------------
    Pictures can lock the viewer to
    give denotative and connotative responses.
    However meaning in pictures is difficult
    mainly because it very often relates more
    to individual interpretation accordingly.

    guess that's true to to some extent... usually when shooting stuff for myself i tend to take dark, moody shots...or if it's not dark and moody..usually change the contrast/ levels to make it look like it does... does describe me to some degree
