Yesterday evening we had a great presentation by one of the cerebral photographers working today. John Paul shared with us his approach to creativity, including writing, doodling, playing, and other tools. On his site he shares a wealth of information with anyone who cares to visit and subscribe to his newsletter. I have been a subscriber and very frequent visitor of JP’s site and in fact shared with our members a couple of techniques I learned from him on some of my presentations. I encourage you all to visit the site and subscribe to the newsletter. You will receive a user ID and password that will give you access to his extensive library.
I also encourage you to try some of the tools John Paul explained last night. They may or may not be your cup of tea, but what do you have to lose? Experimentation has been a core idea in photography since its beginnings and we now have tools that make experimenting much easier, with instant feedback, and practically at no cost. Try it, you may like it.
