In your opinion, what is the relationship between the photograph and reality?
The relationship between a photograph and reality is up to the photographer. They can choose to capture a lifestyle documentary as it is, or incorporate different lighting and apertures to create something that might not be true to the original scene. It's the beauty of art that allows us to dictate what that relationship is.
Transcript: "So the question is in your opinion, what is the relationship between the photograph and reality while my thought process is that it's really up to the photographer and what they want to capture, you have some people who want to create work that's very lifestyle documentary meaning that they want to take exactly what their eyes. See you have other photographers who want to highlight certain aspects of what they see. Perhaps they want to use white apertures and just make a subject look very 3D and pop off the The background or they're going to incorporate different sorts of lighting, where image that may have been captured during the day, can be altered and looked as if it was captured at night time by bringing in a strobe, it really has to do with what the photographer wants to capture and I think that's the relationship between a photograph in reality. It all falls in the hand of the photographer and that's the beauty of taking pictures. The beauty of art, is that we can dictate what that relationship is because we can create it. So we think about how you want to really you know, approach each situation and that's how you're going to really you know be able to hone in your craft and create a style and I think that the style of your photography has a lot to do with the relationship between the images, you create and the reality in which you capture them in."
