Today I’m tying three challenges together in one post.
A personal view of any object is subjective.
So the challenge of the artist/photographer is to create a personal view of an object/scene that can be subjectively viewed in a pleasing way.
No matter how hard you try though, you can never please all the people, all the time!
I think it’s equally important for an artist to remember that the end-user of their product will be looking at it from their own perspective.
They might choose landscape over portrait simply because it better suits the space in their hallway, brochure or computer wallpaper.
It’s hard not to become disheartened when others don’t enjoy or perceive an image that you’ve created in the same way that you do.
I always hope that something in my images will transport my viewers to a place or memory that makes them smile. If just some of you are smiling after seeing my photos today then I’ve achieved my goal.
If you’re not smiling today, please come back tomorrow and perhaps I can make you smile then 🙂
