Advice my photography teachers gave to me — “If it is something you have seen before, DON’T DO IT.” Art is the voice of your vision.
The subjects you choose and the way in which you make an image tell a lot about you as a person. Photography, self-expression, camera
In order to have your work stand out from the rest you need to have something to say, as well as the ability to see. Technique without vision is of little use to anyone.
