Here in this volume of "On Target Photo Training" we delve into correcting facial flaws - in the camera - by the way we pose and light our subjects.
Then we take everything we`ve been learning - tie it all together and start trying to develop our own personal style.
There are many professionals out there where as soon as we see a photo they`ve done, we immediately recognize who the photographer was. As artists, this is a goal we should all
strive to achieve.
When learning, it is important to both learn the rules AND to follow them. Only then should you break them.
Once you are comfortable with the way things normally "should" be done, then you can go your own way and start adding your own creativity and personality into the mix.
That`s when the artist inside of you will get out... And that`s what we all want, isn`t it?
