Sundays are for Art: What can photography teach us about innovation?⁠ ⁠

What can photography teach us about creativity and innovation?⁠ ⁠


Here's a quick excerpt from my upcoming book...⁠


..."it is an illusion that creativity exists without conditions, rules or construct.⁠ ⁠


Whether it be song writing, which requires strict musical and lyrical structure, involving composition and mastery of different instruments.⁠ ⁠


Or photography: requiring an understanding of subject, light, composition, and technical mastery of specific tools.⁠ ⁠


Or the construction of a new bridge: one must appreciate weight distribution, geography, gravity and the population for which it may serve.
⁠


We start to see that creativity is not just a splash of colour - it does not exist in isolation - that creativity plays best, dynamically, within a structure, reacting to conditions".⁠

I only have three rules for my photography:


1. It must be candid

2. I prefer monochrome

3. Avoid photoshop
