Whenever I begin the process of teaching photography, I always start by emphasizing what I believe to be the greatest single asset an artist can possess. It is something that is virtually impossible to copy or steal, the very uniqueness we each possess. Each one of us view the world differently. Our likes and dislikes, our personality, our taste in music, the way we dress, our life experiences, all play into our uniqueness. An attempt to copy or emulate someone’s uniqueness is literally impossible. Has anyone duplicated the artistic vision and the creative genus of Ansel Adams or Irving Pen? Stick with your uniqueness and you will standout from the crowd. Try and copy someone else’s vision and you will blend with the masses. This is something we all need to constantly keep at the forefront of our minds as I move forward in developing our craft.
