When I judged a themed photography contest, titled “A Different Point Of View”, I felt that I may have fell short of some expectations.
I have my idea of what “A Different Point Of View” means and the people that I disappointed have a different point of view of what “A Different Point Of View” means.
My idea of point of view is less about a physical point of view and more about a mind point of view.
I thought that all of the work I viewed reflected the photographers at their best.
My decisions were based more on feeling than specific structure or content.
My thanks to the photographers who participated in the contest for allowing me to view your work. I hope that some of you found my comments helpful.
Here’s some food for thought on “Point Of View”.
Except when working as a photojournalist, which requires an objective point of view, when it comes to making photographs my point of view, is “first person”.
Which point(s) of view do you use in your photography?
