ALBERT EINSTEIN is quoted as saying,
"Imagination is more important than knowledge..."
Do you agree? How do you feel that statement applies (or doesn't) to you and your craft as a photographer? The floor is open for discussion.
I would agree that imagination is more important than knowledge. As a new photographer, imagination is almost all I have to go on. This has forced me to try out techniques that may be viewed as unconventional simply because I didn't know better. But my interest in photography has also pushed me to find information on the craft so that I may refine my own technique with tried and true tips from professionals across the world. I'm also a jazz musician, and any musician knows that an important part of learning the craft is to listen to masters before you. I find equal importance in photography. You can find inspiration in other photographers works. One of my recent favorites has been Eugene Smith and his work which is displayed in The Jazz Loft Project.
