Learning the art of seeing….

Someone said “Unfortunately I don’t think I’m artistic enough , most of my photographs look like tech demos and I need to learn how to make full use of post processing w/o OVER processing my pics.”

Some of things you can do to help you to learn the art of seeing:

1. check out some photography books or look on the net for folks like Adams, Weston, Modotti and Smith:

Weston

Adams

Modotti

Smith

Of course there are many more but these are my favs.

2. go to you local art museum and looks at the perspective and point of view of each art piece – it is an easy way to learn to see

3. see if there is an inexpensive or free art appreciation class at your local community college or museum

4. participate in challenges where you can get feedback.

Hope this helps.
