They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that is so true. That’s why you can have two people looking at modern art in a gallery, one thinking it’s absolutely beautiful while the other person is thinking his 6 year old son could do better. The same applies to photography. A photo may appear stunning to some people while others are wondering what all the fuss is about.
I’m telling you this because there will be times when people will knock one of your photos, telling you it’s crap or something, but when that happens don’t take it personally. If they offer constructive criticism you may want to take it on board but if they’re just being negative just ignore them. The important thing is that you like the photo.
Take this photo of a couple of red Roma tomatoes. I’m sure that a lot of people won’t think too much of it, but I really like it.
I took this photo at season’s end because I liked the way the sunlight gave them an almost translucent effect. Even though a lot of the photo is out of focus, because of the shallow depth of field, you can still tell that the plants are on their final legs. These two were virtually the last fruits of the season. I also like the way the smoothness of the tomatoes contrast the roughness of the stake. I also like the way they seem to almost pop out of the photo.
Anyway, that’s how I feel about things. How about you guys, have you every had someone criticise your photo buy posted them anyway because you liked them?
