Continuing with the Phoblographer’s aim to share the psychology behind why we create, we’re specifically calling on those that do Creative Photography. What does that mean? Consider the idea behind Creating vs Capturing. When you capture a scene, you generally don’t have direct involvement in how it looks, to someone. But if you’re actively working to mess around and change the scene to suit a specific creative vision that you have, then you’re creative.
PS: This doesn’t mean that you need to Photoshop!
Examples of Creative Photography include:
- strobist work
- surreal work
- light painting
- real estate
- fine art
- high speed
- macro (with controlled lighting)
- alternative process work
If you’re really confused, then check this out. We’re open to other types of work, but this is just what we want to feature right now. So to do that, check out how to apply below.
