Learning to See ~ Rafael Rojas

Reality does not exist. Each of us makes our own reality. Perception, which might start with visual stimuli, is filtered by our mental templates, preconceptions, memories and experiences. The result becomes a personal appreciation of reality, which then, by association, releases a number of emotions, feelings and souvenirs linked to other situations and experiences of our life.

Photographing the world means making statements about it, and if we want our statements to be meaningful we need to fully absorb what is around us, understand the way it affects us and then explore ways to communicate that effectively through photography.

This is why learning to see, and learning how the camera ‘sees’, will not only make you a better photographer, but will help you live in a more intense way. Great Pointers…
