visit, a photo by Random and Odd on Flickr.

I was in the middle of an Andy Katz class and someone in the class said, “I notice you don’t follow the rules. You put your subject in the middle and don’t follow the rules of thirds.”
I have been drawn to his photography for awhile, but I always thought it was the clean lines and soft romantic feel.
He said something like, I hate rules. I like what I like and this is how I like it.
I think lately I have been noticing more of the technical aspects of photography; the rules of 3rds being broken, the negative space in the wrong spots. Harsh lights and blown out pictures. I was getting snobby about it too. Taking a hard look at my work I realize that I am not a rule follower and when I try to follow the rules, it comes out fake. I like balanced, even, clean lines. I like realistic colors. I like classic black and white and not blown to shit facial features. This is not to say that some of my favorite pictures are the ones I mess with until I have no idea the steps I took to get it there, probably because I hated the picture before and I wanted to see if I could salvage it. Some of my best work is straight out of the camera, but the ones I enjoy are the ones that would have been discarded. I think this says more about my personality than I realized before taking these classes.
I like a good, clean shot and that’s easy for me. I LOVE difficult and temperamental shots.
A quote from this morning’s class that was a rerun from yesterday was something like, If you always do what you’re good at, you will most likely not fail. You will also not grow and become stagnant and that is even worse than failure.
I get this. There is a photographer out there that does those same family shots and they all look identical. All the wedding pictures are the same as the ones from the wedding before. No new technique. Completely predictable. I don’t want to become that photographer. I was that photographer for years.

I woke up this morning to a kiss from a wonderful man and as soon as he walked out the door my mind was racing about what I was going to learn in class today. I got up 2 hours earlier to prepare for my day. That is such an amazing and wonderful feeling to be living and breathing in something I love and I put aside for too long.

    Glad you are learning and growing. Too many people get stuck for years and then find it too hard to move.

    Your style has been enviable since the day I started reading your blog/stalking your flickr.
    You have no idea how incredibly talented you are in the field of photography but it never hurts to continue to learn.
