Hi,

I am a kinda photographer who loves to experiment a lot! Generally i will have some ideas or concepts, i make them into reality and i capture my ideas. Basically its like conceptual pics.

The problem is that i cant think all the time to get different ideas and being creative all the time seems difficult when u are working in corporate. I love to hear from people where i can find conceptual pics/ideas/concepts so that i can implement those or i can do justice to those ideas.

share any links/ideas if u feel that will help.

Thanks,
vinod

The few I've done tend to come when I'm not trying.

Just let your mind wander. I often find its when I'm trying to sleep the best ideas come ( just have a notepad handy, or you will have a sleepless night). Look at others work don't copy just use as an influence. I bought a book on Dali, most of his better ideas is where he borrowed an idea from others and put his twist on it.
On here look at the work of DaveU,Ian Monroe, Chase, Alleycatz, Victor Habbick, Cole, Delone, breadandshutter, Eviscera, Scaramanga and many many others.

Most of my bright ideas - and not so bright - come to me on the bus home after work Smile Just staring out of the window thinking about nothing. When I try to force an idea it's generally a total failure Smile

There's no harm in copying other ideas just to get your head round the mechanics of setting up a photo and then doing your own thing.

Actually I realise that it was Nick's pic - Death of a Salesman - that prompted me to do one of my recent pics Smile

I take most of my inspiration from music and song lyrics, but I also sketch down and write notes for any half-ideas. They sometimes get combined into a finished piece. Looking through other artists portfolios can be a good way to see where others take ideas, but also a wander round an art gallery can be useful too. I use a certain mix of colour and light in a lot of my work that comes from my love of traditional art and the 'masters'

Upload some images on here, it would make things a little easier, and you would probably get more member feedback too, which can only be a good thing. Grin

Hover over 'Community' (along the top bar) and click on 'Members'. There you can put their name in the 'search box', you can also see an alphabet (click on the letter of their name), or you can see who is actually on line at the moment (except for those folk who hide that information). Smile

The only way I know is to look under Community and select Members, and select a name. It will take you to their PF.

Although you have been a member here for almost 4 months, you have not posted any photographs of your own in your gallery. Sharing is the foundation of a community like this.

First rule of conceptual photography: don't use a camera!

Just photgraph any old ball-cocks and tell everyone it's an "eclectic collection of conceptual photography"

Seems to work for most "Fine Art" Photographers
