This week we looked at a few important documentary photographers/art photographers. I showed you these pictures so you can see what people have done in the past — at the time, these were very ground-breaking artists/photographers. I want you to see how other people think, what they are interested in, and what their motivations were for taking pictures. This will help you make your own decisions when taking pictures 🙂
Here are the pictures we looked at:
ROBERT FRANK, “The Americans”
We also looked at Dorothea Lange (Great Depression migrant farm workers) and Walker Evans.
Take pictures of things that interest YOU. Whatever that may be. You don’t have to be able to explain it, so don’t think about that. Just take pictures and upload ONE to your online portfolio.
REMEMBER TO USE GOOD COMPOSITION (rule of thirds) unless you can realllllyy make it look mind-blowing without it.
