She followed the crowd (Dorothy's journey)
Don't say that word...ok, you can! "Skee-to-pia"
She followed the crowd (Dorothy's journey):
This picture , everytime I look at it, I see a different story, where is she going? where are they going? why is she following them? Is she following them? will she return? What do you feel?
There are two kinds of photographers: those who compose pictures and those who take them. The former work in studios. For the latter, the studio is the world.... For them, the ordinary doesn't exist: every thing in life is a source of nourishment. Ernst Haas
Earlier on during the week on various blogs, Skee talked about, creativity and technical ability, and how a healthy ratio of the two is desired. I strongly believe that, while the technical part can be developed creativity is something, sadly you either have or you don't. A fancy camera, can take perfect pictures but with all the "L-glass" you can buy, creativity is not for sale.

Lots of my work is dark, in a sense, as it has heavily been influenced by my painting style-Chiaroscuro. more about this can be read here http://skee.shutterchance.com/photoblog/979.htmAs creative as one gets, the technicallities should not be abandoned
A technical as one gets... creativity should always be included.
As an artist who hates to be labeled as a "photographer", Skee has realised that his work will not meet everyones taste, but it should challenge the creativity in you all to get out there and do something different, being both creative and technically excellent.
