Photograph what you love

March 28, 2011

Recently I was discussing my Kenya gallery exhibit with a friend of mine, more specifically which pictures she liked the most.  During the conversation she mentioned that this exhibit should have given me a pretty good idea about which kind of images people prefer (I had divided my exhibit into four sections – wildlife, landscapes, people and monochrome images – in order to provide an overall view). But here is the thing – during the opening I talked to the guests to get their impressions and everyone had a different favorite! So what can I conclude from this? People have different tastes and it will be impossible to please everyone.  So photograph what you love. There is a little bit of you in all of your photographs and your passion for your subject will show in your images, no matter what this subject might be.  Go out and have fun!

    I agree. Art is a very personal thing. We should feel very fantastic if anyone likes our work enough to hang it in their home or office.
