10 TIPS FROM PHOTOGRAPHER OKSANA KANIVETS:
1
Take lots of shots.
The author's style, the clear vision, precision of the frame and plot construction will come only with the practice.
2
Believe in what you do.
Confidence strength helps to achieve results. It becomes especially important while connecting with people.
3
Be honest with yourself.
Shoot only when it reflects in you. Falsehood is always visible in art.
4
Watch all the time.
The most important is self-education: galleries, museums, fairs. It is essential to attend key events and, when possible, become familiar with the analytics of contemporary topics and movements in the arts.
5
Learn new.
Regardless of the level of your professionalism.
6
Working with people.
First of all, this is your emotional interaction, and then your technique. When taking a portrait, the contact of the photographer and the model is a fundamentally important part.
7
Don't be afraid to experiment.
Hear your ideas and translate them. Otherwise, they will come up and be embodied by someone else.
8
Shoot in terms of the projects.
Always keep ideas in mind and find them a visual expression in our lives. The surrounding life contains all the topics, the author's work is to see his own.
9
Conflict.
Critical thinking and content must be central in the project. The task of the form is to merely emphasize the idea.
10
10. The choice of technique should be consistent with the idea and the form of the project.
Technology without content is not self-sufficient.
