I recently interviewed photographer and author Harold Davis for photo.net. Harold discusses his latest book Light & Exposure for Digital Photographers , as well as discusses his creative photography vision. There are two different modes I can be in at any given time during my working process. I can be in a very analytical planning mode or a creative inspired free mode. Lately, I’ve been looking at some of M.C. Escher’s work for ideas. He did these great patterns and continuing stairways and things like that. -Harold Davis Read the Photo.net Interview with Harold Davis . Harold also offers a creative assignment. The top 3 photos from the project will be chosen for special recognition on photo.net. See below. Photo.net Member Assignment: photograph a flower in a unique way—in a way that nobody’s seen before. Take a month to dive in to photographing a flower in an unusual creative way. If you have questions or seek advice, post your thoughts here (or at the end of Harold's interview.) Upload your series to your photo.net gallery in a folder titled “Harold Davis Flower Project” and add your best (1) single photo to the comments section below (photo should be no wider than 700px width). The photo must also be in your photo.net gallery for consideration. Due date: February 23rd. These will be compiled into an article and Harold and the Photo.net Editorial staff will select the top 3 photos from this project for special recognition. The top photos will be announced in March 2009.
