Reflections by The Greatest Photographers

Reflections by The Greatest Photographers

This week I want to show some reflections of the greatest photographer´s of all time. Some used reflections in their composition and as a part of their creative process. These photographers are an example of excellence in their craft and we should study them closely to get inspired and learn some of their techniques. The passion that they show in their work is something that I would like to point out. It was out of passion that they could create a perfect image. They had to find a way of obtaining the unforgettable, vastly difficult to obtain, image. Even if it meant risking their lives or putting their life on hold to get it done. Life for us, the creative chicks in the 21st century, is completely different from the old masters. We are constantly being bombarded with advetisment, new technology, consumerism, social pressure and politics. We don´t take time to  contemplate anything. The way we see things now and how we capture moments is faster and easier because of technology and this makes some take those moments for granted. Our poetry and creativity is influenced by our fast-paced living, internet and TV. Photography should be well-planned and thought out, while also being quick and tenacious. We have to practice it all. What I´d like to convey to you is that we need to look at many photographers and their work. Look at how the old artist´s work and try to find one that resonates with us and copy what they were doing. Our own style will develop with time, hard work and patience.

Esta semana quiero mostrarles algunos reflejos de los fotógrafos más impresionantes de todos los tiempos. Algunos utilizaron reflejos en su composición y, como parte de su proceso creativo. Estos fotógrafos son un ejemplo de excelencia en su oficio y debemos estudiarlos de cerca para inspirarnos y aprender algunas de sus técnicas. La pasión que muestran en su trabajo es algo que me gustaría destacar. Gracias a esta pasión es que pudieron crear la imagen perfecta. Tenían que encontrar una manera de obtener esa imagen inolvidable, muy difícil de obtener. Incluso si eso significaba arriesgar sus vidas o detener sus vidas para hacerlo. La vida para nosotras, las chicks creativas en el siglo 21, es completamente diferente a la de los viejos maestros. Constantemente estamos siendo bombardeadas con publicidad, nuevas tecnologías, el consumismo, la presión social y la política. Nosotras no nos tomamos el tiempo para contemplar nada. La forma en que vemos las cosas ahora y cómo capturamos los momentos es más rápido y más fácil debido a la tecnología y esto hace que algunas tomen esos momentos por sentado. Nuestra poesía y la creatividad se ve influenciada por nuestro ritmo de vida ajetreado, el internet y la televisión. La fotografía debe ser bien planificada y pensada, además de ser rápida y tenaz. Tenemos que practicarlo todo. Lo qué me gustaría transmitirles es que tenemos que mirar a muchos fotógrafos y su trabajo. Mira cómo funcionan los artista y tratar de encontrar uno que resuene con nosotros y copiar lo que estaban haciendo. Nuestro propio estilo se desarrollará con el tiempo, el trabajo duro y mucha paciencia.
