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.

"If you never try anything different, you will not be different"-Anon ( Actually...Skee)


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.htm

As 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.

New lingo:
1.) S.T.E : Skeetown effect
2.) "A Skee moment": Nobody, talk, move or even breathe ;-)
3.) "YabaYabaYaba" : Thumbs up

more next friday!

Hope you all had a good laugh, I know I did, thanks for dropping by.

The side lighting on the each of the figures gradually draws the viewer into this wonderful compositionary piece. There is a almost unchanny sense of movement even though the view sees no motion. Skee, you have utilises every space of the frame as it it was an artist canvas, coupled with the total absense of colour, we see, not just a magnificent capture but a true work of art.

YabaYabaYaba! Your writeup, though interesting, I however do not agree with. Studio work is both challenging and creative.

regards TJ.

wow skee,

this is a really dope shot. everytime i look at this shot, there is something different that i like about it. i love the lighting, and how it draws you to the focal point at the "front of the line." i also love the perspective. the shot really allows your mind to wander and come up with a host of stories to accompany the photo. i especially love the way the people are silhouetted against the light.

Great shot. There are so many captions you could make for this... most of them sinister. Coolio!

Yabayabayaba for this photo. I disagree with some of what you say about creativity. I believe you can learn to think creatively, albeit at a probably less successful and slower rate than learning technical aspects. I also think that everybody has creativity to some degree or other. It's not as clear cut as having it or not.

awsome light on the hair .... No, she isn't following them. She is following no-one and nothing, just her own path. She will return, when she's ready.....
