Expressing Yourself Through Photography

May 19, 2005 | Mark Goldstein | Technique | Comment |

Digital Outback Photo have published an interesting article by Alain Briot on the subject of personal expression in photography:

“I am often asked if the color of a specific photograph is real or not. My answer is always the same. Yes, it is real. The reaction from the person asking the question is usually one of disbelief. They beg to differ. To them the color is not real. To me it is real. Who is right? The answer is we are both right because in the absence of the actual subject to compare the photograph to we are left with our personal memories of this subject and, as we all know, memories are by nature subjective.”
