For many of us, Nick Melidonis’ article might be a little premature as parts of Australia continue to deal with Covid-19. However, we have to applaud Nick’s positive approach and making the most of what the world has given us.

Write’s Nick, “It was wonderful during the Covid-19 lockdown period how many photographic friends and colleagues kept in touch and shared some amazing photos, often taken in their own back yards.”

So, how can we best use our time, either during lockdown or as we emerge from it? Adds Nick, “Better Photography publishes numerous articles on photographic technique and cutting edge digital enhancement, keeping readers abreast of the latest and greatest cameras and accessories. But photography is not only about equipment or Photoshop know-how. If you are one of the many readers who is already competent with a camera and is an aspiring fine-art photographer, what would be the next step in shooting images with impact and putting together a body of work which shows a distinctive style?”

Nick then runs through a series of issues to consider – keeping things simple, finding your passion, avoiding fads, effects and gimmicks, creating new interpretations of old themes, and accepting that it is the image not the process that makes a photograph. “What matters is the image, not the process that produced it. I will use whatever tools I have at my disposal if it serves the image and what I’m trying to say. That means we need to stay on top of the technology and where photography is heading, so we are aware of the options and choices.”

This is a really great thought-provoking article – and an introduction to Nick’s next article on producing a portfolio of your own.
