What is Creative Photography ?
Creative Photography is the art of using light to express the individuals own and personal interpretation on what he / she see`s.
A creative photographer has trained his or her eyes to see things that others might not. Walking across a beach , a creative worker might see common objects lying on the sand. Those whose perception is less acute might typically see nothing more than discarded waste. A creative photographer may be found lying on the ground and peering up at a subject that others see only from normal head height. Why? Because the possibility of an interesting image based upon unusual perspective has been spotted. Within many descriptions of the genre, this might qualify as creative work.
Creative photography does not entirely depend on equipment, a creative person uses his vision and may record the image with a simple automatic camera. A trained and competent photographer, however, knowledgeable of his equipment and processes can enhance their creative capabilities by producing work crafted just the way they want it to be.
