Are you a young, aspiring photographer trying to find your way in a confusing world with many options? An accomplished photographer critiques a variety of photographs in this wonderful video instruction, providing some insightful suggestions along the way.
This instructive video, The Art of Photography by Ted Forbes, offers a number of assessments of photographers’ photographs as well as helpful guidance for aspiring photographers. Staying loyal to oneself would be my one piece of advice for a young creator.
You will probably find hundreds or even thousands of incredibly identical photos if you go to Instagram or a comparable platform and search for a popular hashtag. Although it can be tempting to copy those photos since they are currently in style, doing so is rarely (if ever) as rewarding as creating your own unique look.
And if you pursue this as a career, you’ll be competing with many other similarly talented creatives and continuously pursuing the newest trend rather than establishing a distinctive style that helps to set your work apart from the competition. For the complete Forbes overview, watch the video above.
