New Article Posted At Lexar.com – Lessons Learned on Assignment: India

My latest article is up now at Lexar.com

“It’s no secret that as humans we hear what we want to hear and see what we want to see. If our expectations determine, to some degree, what we see, then to that same degree our expectations determine what we will and will not shoot. In the case of travel photography, especially where well-known destinations are involved, we have a lifetime of postcards and classic travel photographs that inform our thoughts and feelings of a place.

To the degree that we keep to that vision. we will never see, feel, or experience a place for ourselves. When shooting the Taj Mahal recently, it took all day to first shoot the classic images and get them out of the way before I could slow down and really begin to see the place for what it was, or what it was in those moments to me. A compelling photograph is one that says what you feel about a place, and to feel something beyond the cliché, you need to take some time, slow down, stop looking and begin seeing. This has been compared elsewhere to the difference between shooting a picture of a model and shooting a portrait. The image of the model, usually a product shot of some kind, is an image OF a person. A portrait is an image ABOUT a person. And so it is with travel images, or anything you shoot.”
