Photographer Sean Tucker shares a few insights with regards to becoming a better photographer; “In the same way as owning a paint brush doesn’t make you an artist, becoming a great photographer is about so much more.”
I can’t tell you how often I hear someone say they just need X new camera or lens and that would improve their photography. Sure, the technology out there today is simply mind blowing, and it certainly has its place. But photography as a form of art goes far beyond the technical aspects of your camera, it’s also about light, seeing and telling a story. In this video, we join photographer Sean Tucker, as he explores how to become a better photographer through “visual exercise”.
“As photographers, it’s very easy to fall down the deep, dark hole of gear lust; or to get lost in reams of techy info, thinking these things will make us better photographers. They may help you learn how to use the tools, but in the same way as owning a paint brush doesn’t make you an artist, becoming a great photographer is about so much more.
The following video gives some of my thoughts on how to ‘exercise visually’, how to open your eyes to the world around, and how to become photo-aware. I hope it inspires you to shoot more often, with more abandon, and to develop your photography as art, not science.”
