Education Before Innovation

Before we can be different we must first know the lie of the land. I love looking at underwater photographs. I always have, always will; and I think it is important for any photographer both for inspiration and education. There are so many places to look: books, magazines, competition galleries and in more recent times, browsing websites on the Internet. I still have a folder on my desktop called inspirational images.

By studying the work of others we learn much. Initially we see what works when putting together images: the angles on fish that are revealing, the juxtaposition of elements in wide angle scenes that are pleasing, the types of lighting that complement subjects, etc. Equally important, we will start to recognise patterns in how most people shoot and, if we want to be different, we can identify areas to exploit.
