Manifesto of the Travelling Photographer

 

 


Let the light guide you
The camera looks both ways
Who is taking the photo - you or the camera?
It's not about the camera it's about the photo
> > > > > Get Closer < < < < <
The photographer is always present in the photo
Show me the beauty of your subject
Give people nothing but respect
90% struggle and 10% despair
.........................................Go Slow
Cameras don't see objects they see light
The camera is a brush
An expert is someone who has made more mistakes than you

 

Original inspiration from the Manifesto for Visual Culture

Photography for Travellers

Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."

Hashed

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
