How I got Inspired into Arts
Last summer, I decided for the first time to visit an art gallery which is located at the heart of our local time. There was an event going down that day at the gallery and I wanted to give a friend moral support as he showcased his artistic works. I hadn’t told him that I would be there, and I wanted it to be a big surprise.
When I arrived at the gallery, it was quiet busy as various artisans tried to display their various works. Tracing my friend wasn’t easy as I tried to go through the crowd of people at the place. However, as I did so, I couldn’t fail to appreciate the various exhibited works. Some of them were so marvelous and anyone could easily detect the high levels of creativity and efforts which was using in creating various works.
At one particular place, I came across some photographs about nature which had been taken from various beautiful places in the field. The landscapes were beautiful and I couldn’t help but wonder how the photographer had tried successfully to capture the landscapes. There were multiple times that I had always tried taking pictures of beautiful landscapes around the world, but I never had the advantage of getting nice shots as the ones that I was seeing. I had to ask.
Although the photographer tried to be brief and concise as possible, I didn’t grab much information because there were other visitors who also wanted to be attended to and thus our conversation had to be disrupted from time to time.
Landscape Photography can be a Great Source of Creativity
Since I really wanted to know how I could just take great pictures of landscapes, I embarked on a research mission and tried to improve the quality of every landscape that I shot. The learning curve was a bit steep since I had to learn each tweak one at a time and then practice to perfect it, but with time, the whole experience became seamless.
When it comes to taking great pictures of landscapes, you need to know it just doesn’t happen like that. You need to be a professional photographer to be at a position of tweaking your camera in order to capture high quality photographs. This can be easily achieved with a digital camera whose megapixel range from 5 – 8.
However, when I was in the field learning various ways of taking landscape pictures, I started becoming more creative that I was before. Most of the times, I would go deep in some scenic nature places as I tried to find the best spot to take pictures. Whenever I found one, I still took time to admire its beauty. The more places I went, the more sharper my creative side became.
When you create something unique, it can help you become better in art
I started exploring other ways of becoming artistic other than taking photographs. I wanted something unique which still would depict some beautiful scenes of nature. That is when the idea of digital painting came into my mind. However, I still had to learn to use various computer tools and software in painting my various works. Yet still I had to learn how to produce the best paints. This wasn’t a huge task since I was always inspired by nature and I had become quiet creative.
I have a collection of various works that I’ve worked on in the past few months, but what is more important now is the facts that most of the people who view my usually marvel at it. I have one client who after seeing some of my works recently, gave me a contract of creating a gaming environment for him. I’ve been trying various environments to find out which is suitable, but I believe that this is a positive step in my career. I’m working on building a portfolio which will enable me attract more clients in the future. As being a photographer, it doesn’t matter what type, you get to see, appreciate, realize, and notice what a beautiful world we live in.
