5 Common Photography Mistakes ll Inspiration vs. Imitation

Author: Libby - Printique by Adorama

In the last chapter of our 5 Common Photography Mistakes series, we take a look at a major pitfall, imitating others. Finding your path and vision in photography takes time. For many just starting out, it’s easier just to take a look at other’s websites and start to imitate what has already been done. This is the hardest lesson to learn.  What you need to remember is that you have your own unique ideas and vision and finding it will take some time.
Inspiration can be found in anything from movies to paintings to nature. It’s all around you.
For example, I have always loved the painting of Ophelia by John Everett Millais. It has inspired many artists and photographers. I wanted to do my own spin on it with my daughter.
Courtney Slazinik of Click it Up a Notch, talks to us about imitation versus inspiration and how to break through to find your own vision.
