New Feature! Photo Question Friday
If you’ve read my ‘about me’ section you’ll know that this blog aims to be a bit broader than just talking about my wedding photography business. I blog bits stuff that I find on the internet, personal work and even my holiday snaps. This blog, I guess, is about my photography journey.
Part of my journey (and in fact any journey), I believe, involves learning from others through discussion and observation. Interaction with others can result in that creative spark that leads you do challenge yourself and improve your work.
Because of that I’ll be asking a photography related question, every Friday so that I can find out what you think. You don’t have to be a photographer to answer the question, you just have to have an appreciation for photography.
So my first question:
Tell me about one of your favourite photographers from any photographic discipline. You don’t need to write lots about them if you don’t want to (I’m not looking for a full critique!) just a bit about what you like about their work and whether you have a favourite piece of work
I struggled to answer this, as there are so many photographers whose work I love, but I’m going to go with Gregory Crewdson and in particular his Twilight Series.
I love that his work manages to feel gritty and raw in spite of being highly produced (he shoots as though on a film set). It’s beautiful but also slightly uncomfortable.
Tell me about a photographer whose work you like and why…
