How Do You See? Final Plus Post
#HDYSPLUSPOST6 #HowDoYouSee2 #HDYS2A6 Lauri Novak
For the past six weeks I’ve been involved in a photography mentorship offered by Lauri Novak through the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers . In How Do You See, we learned to ask ourselves to consider different perspectives, to refresh ourselves on the the elements of photography and more importantly, to learn to slow down, think about what we’re shooting, and attempt to express ourselves SOOC in order to get our messages across and tell our stories through our photos using that which lives inside us.
I’ve learned, above all that Simplicity is key for my own personal style.
This quote below by Suzy Kassem expresses my own feelings regarding what we’re drawn to, and what we can choose to portray, both in art and life itself.
“I believe that if there is a huge chunk of white/truth in you, you will be drawn mostly to truth. If there is a lot of black/ego in you, you will naturally migrate to darkness/ego. We can’t change our natural compositions or our attraction to certain lighting, but we can slowly change our angle of perception. Anyone can work on balancing their inner lighting simply by adjusting their outer lenses. All you have to do is learn to use your heart before your mind to see things. There is no light greater than truth, and it shines at the heart of all creation. Be like a butterfly and celebrate it every day. It is inside you.”
