How would you define quality? Legendary photographer, Elliott Erwitt states in an interview; “Quality doesn’t mean deep blacks and whatever tonal range. That’s not quality, that’s a kind of quality. It’s not balancing out the sky to the sand and so forth. It’s got to do with intention.” Do you remember back when you first started to take photos and nothing you took was ever good enough or of equal standards to ones you’ve seen and were inspired by. That’s where I am now, but did you know that the very first snapshot in the history of photography was taken in 1826 and the exposure of the shot lasted 8 hours! That must have taken a lot of patience to finally produce a quality photograph that was to represent the future of photography. That’s us, the present day photographers. But that is only one aspect of this blog, the ther is dedicated to the quality art that Elliot Erwitt creates. The plan is to critique five photographs of his based on my personal judgement and the composition rules of photography. In the end, I will attempt to take photographs in mimicry of Erwitt’s style, but the intention is not to forge his work.
