Reflection

Theorizing about photography can be confusing. I’ve read and am still reading a lot of essays and books by critics and photographers. Sometimes I think a point is made that works for me, but reading another article the conclusion is contradicted.

I like to watch tv series for relaxation, but the good ones have a plot that surprises. Unfortunately after a couple of episodes the trick becomes clear. Originality wears off. I think with photography is the same.

I did a couple of shoots without specific exercises in mind. I combined these with shoots I did especially for the excercises. It was interesting to study “the state” of my photography, how I reach certain depth of field. I noticed that when I started thinking about how to do an exercise instead of how to make the best possible shot (or series) photographing became more difficult. Of course the same decisions are made, but in another state of mind.
