Like any other art, there are clichés in photography, and it is worth being aware of them before you head out with your camera. This great video tutorial takes a look at seven of the most common ones, how they became clichés, and whether we should embrace them or do something else.
Coming to you from Peter Forsgård, this interesting video takes a look at seven common photo clichés. I don't think one should simply categorically avoid any and all clichés; after all, many of them attained that status because they were so popular in the first place. However, the problem with working with such ideas and techniques is that because of that popularity, you are generally not exploring the creation of your own original voice. If you choose to work with such techniques, it is worth asking yourself how you might push past them and find ways to make them your own or to even abandon them entirely. One of the hallmarks of the best creatives is that they never stop pushing themselves, experimenting, and finding new techniques and ways to express themselves. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Forsgård.
