The recent discussion of creativity on the interior/exterior thread showed that different people have different understandings of what “creativity” is, but that there is a general sense that people can recognize when they themselves are being particularly creative. It struck me that the level of creativity involved in producing an image might not be evident to others on viewing the image. To get a feel for what certifiably (from the point of view of the photographer) creative images look like, I’d like to invite each of you to post an example of a recent image that you felt you were being particularly creative while making and a description of when in the process the creativity was most strongly expressed. My example is one that is among the most creative I’ve made (showing up in the initial concept, figuring out how to compose the shot, and a bit in the solution of a post-processing issue), but I have no idea whether the level of creativity is perceptible to others. I’d much appreciate your take on that, too.
