How to think like a painter to improve your photography

How to think like a painter to improve your photography
Photography and painting go a long way. In order to be accepted in a time where photography was considered less art, photographers tried to emulate paintings for example. And it’s the general consensus to learn classical art for the purposes of photography. But that’s not what I will talk about here, I’m going to talk about thinking like a painter in order to break free of reality. — by Olivier Duong

Go beyond what meets the eye, think like a painter, use the world as your canvas, use it as a platform for your imagination. Be yourself, stay focused and keep on shooting.

The Blessings of Kuroshio Current – Yaeyama Islands, Okinawa by Takeshi Fukazawa

“I fully enjoyed the blue ocean that Yaeyama is famous for and the dynamic lights in the morning and evening during the spell of sunny weather. I felt the ocean showed me various colors reflected not by the strong summer sunlight but by the soft, winter sunlight. … Yaetama stays attractive by offering new experience and sensation whenever I visit there.”

Masumi Takahashi Photography

“Mobility of the camera matters in landscape photography. I need a reliable tool to be a part of myself to freeze the spur-of-the-moment to express what I feel. The Lumix GH4 is compact and lightweight enough. The flexible potential of the camera allows me to express my intention, making it possible to give my full attention to the scenery in front of me.”

Oktawia by Kurt Salhofer

The steady softness of horses
Oktawia by Kurt Salhofer for Bambi Magazine issue XVI.

Horses are salt-soaked muscles with rising veins, iron and leather and pounding hooves, deep chests harnessed in surrender and restraint. At other times they’re the gentle sum of wide, quiet eyes and soft feathery manes, the nudge of a wet nose and the eagerness for company. It’s no wonder we can equate the noble creature equally to fetish or to femininity, as does the styling by Sky Lathuya Le in Kurt Salhofer’s beautiful shoot for issue 16 of Bambi Magazine. — by Tania Braukämper
