Try “Improvisation” To Build Your Vision

I believe that photography is “jazz with a camera”. Always have. The improvisational function of what we do is so similar to a jazz musician that the allegory works incredibly well.

In this post I show you one of my recent “improvs” with a handfull of seashells.

The point is to narrow the scope of the project to a confined area / time allocation. This increases focus. Your energy level stays high and you are pushed by the constraints of the situation.

Read the article at Essentials for Photographers and let me know what your improvisational plans will be.

I have been a photographer, art director, creative director and designer for nearly 40 years. The experience both behind the camera and behind the desk hiring photographers has given me a unique set of tools for working with photographers. Project 52 grew out of a frustration with the boards and forums that seem to be more about personalities than the actual work of being a commercial photographer. I am not famous, and I have no aspirations to be... but I know what the hell I am talking about.
