Expressive Photography

I recently attended a lecture about expressive photography by an outstanding photographer M.Shmidt.

His philosophy is that in order to show something in a photograph you have to feel it yourself. In order to achieve this, one has to be in a good mental shape, may help. You should be completely isolated from evryday life and stress. In my opinion it's not so easy to accomplish!

As for the subjcet, he says, avoid everything that is obvious. Finding your subject is the hardest part. A good subject is something that attracts you. We should not react intellectually, but purely emotionally.
