I wanted to highlight a recent documentary I discovered online called “Press Pause Play” which offers a fascinating look at the digital revolution and all of its implications for artists. I found it extremely engaging, as well as thought provoking in so many ways.
In an age where everyone has affordable access to the tools to be an artist, especially in photography, how do we separate the good from the great. This is one of the very ideas I have been writing about on this blog since I started, and continue to focus on here and in my workshops. We all have access to the gear and technology, therefore getting the next best lens or camera body, or improving your HDR skills is not necessarily going to help you say something meaningful.
So the question becomes how do you stand out? How do you rise above the saturation of imagery in the world today?
