Inspiration Sheet: Concepts

Welcome
To inspire you this week, I want you to start thinking differently about what you photograph.
The first thing I teach new photographers is to start by asking yourself what is the subject of the image you are about to create. It is easy to think of the subject as an object, the thing in front of the camera. And much of the time that is what it will be. However, sometimes the subject is not a thing but an idea, a concept.
Photography is at its most powerful when it communicates with the viewer. While images of things can communicate how beautiful or interesting the thing is, concepts can communicate more, they cause the viewer to think.
Keep making great images,
Ian
