HOW WE SEE IT

HOW WE SEE IT

IF YOU TOOK 3 PHOTOGRAPHERS, AND ASK THEM TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THE SAME THING, WOULD YOU GET THE SAME PICTURE?  THAT IS AN INTERESTING QUESTION THAT WE FOUND OUT JUST LATELY.  MY WIFE AND I WERE GOING FOR A WALK ONE DAY AND FOUND THIS GRASSY FIELD FULL OF FLOWERS.  SHE TAKES A PICTURE OF THE FIELD, AND I TAKE A PICTURE OF THE SAME FIELD.  THE RESULTS ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT.  GOOD ON BOTH SIDES, BUT DIFFERENT.  WE WERE SOMEWHAT SURPRISED.  SO WE DID IT AGAIN.  THE RESULTS ARE HERE FOR YOU TO CHECK OUT.  WE FOUND AN OLD PARK THAT HAD A BRIDGE GOING ACROSS A STREAM.  THIS TIME WE HAD 3 PHOTOGRAPHERS TOGETHER.  EACH TOOK DIFFERNT SHOTS OF THE DIFFERENT IDEAS OF WHAT THEY THOUGHT WOULD BE THEIR PERSPECTIVE OF ART OR THE FINAL PHOTO THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE.  HERE ARE THE RESULTS:

This is the same bridge, taken at the same time, same place, cameras are different of course, but, composition and thought process is different.

PHOTOGRAPHER #1:


PHOTOGRAPHER #2:



PHOTOGRAPHER #3:



IS ONE RIGHT OR WRONG?  DO YOU LIKE ONE BETTER THAN THE OTHER?  CAN YOU SEE THAT EACH PHOTOGRAPHER SEES DIFFERENT THINGS WHEN TAKING PICTURES.  THAT IS WHY PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN TAKE PHOTOS OF THE SAME THING AND CAN GET DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF THE SUBJECT.  THIS IS A GOOD PRACTICE IN HUMAN PERSPECTIVE IN ART.  IT IS THE SAME WITH ART:  SOME PEOPLE MAY LIKE VAN GOGH, AND OTHERS MAY NOT.  IT IS ALL PERSPECTIVE. IF I ASKED YOU TO VOTE ON WHAT YOU LIKE, WHAT RESPONSE WOULD I GET?  IS ONE REALLY BETTER? 

WE WILL DO THIS AGAIN WITH THE SAME PHOTOGRAPHERS, OR OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS.  THIS WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT WE COME UP WITH.
