Yesterday I attended a workshop which consisted of a series of lectures by Art Wolfe on composition. It was very instructive and entertaining. Despite being best known as a wildlife and nature photographer, Art’s approach speaks to any photographic endeavour. If you ever get the chance, perhaps consider going along to one of Art’s workshops - he is a very likeable, humble guy and has a great way of putting across information.
The early part, which I found most interesting, dealt with how he constantly finds inspiration from other art forms, such as painting, calligraphy and sculpture.
It reminded me of my two photos here, which I took in Italy in 2008 during my digital era. To me they give more than a passing nod to painting and fit with Art’s advice to look for unintentional art. Do you think so?
