      Hi Dawn – thanks for your message. The links are where the writing is in bold. So for number seven it’s the film title ‘Merci’ that is bolded and linked to the film. I’m sorry it’s not very clear. The text options on our website are not good, I think the text is generally too small as well as it being hard to see the links. We are looking for ways to change it so that people can read it easier – especially as we always include so many links in our posts. But I hope you can find them now. Maybe I’ll look at making the linked copy another colour. Thanks for pointing it out, I’ll a find a solution.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Anthony – when we all do this, it gives another generation of photographers a flying start & a chance to get stuck right into shooting good photos.

    I share your love of “light” and love the photos you post, showing what it means to you.

    I have a phobia about pastiche – pastiche is never “right”. A number of other photographers, when they try publishing their views, seem to want to corral people into blindly following their own personal mantra. To me, that is totally wrong.

    New photographers should be encouraged to develop their own style, while also given some helpful hints that will encourage them to do it and shove them off in the right direction to hit their target. You seem to have an instinctive understanding of this – an ability to open their eyes and their minds, without leaving them all to produce the same thing.

      Being pastiche is something I’ve tried to I avoid all my working life. When I was working as a printer in Los Angeles everyday clients would come in everyday with “new work” that was just an emulation of what was currently trending – just so they could get published as that is what the un-creative minds at the agencies wanted to see.

      I made it my purpose as a creative to try and find an original look. Being a spawn of a technical school (Brooks Institute of Photography) I found an obscure film process called color acceleration that I used in a new creative way. Originally it was used to boost low ISO film speeds, but the drawback was a nasty color shift. I loved it and used in my landscape photography. I remember my Advanced Color professor, Mr Rand, telling me that was not what it was for (creating artsy images) but never the less the results were intriguing. I passed the class.

      If you are not finding your own path, but following someone elses then you are on the wrong path and will most likely never succeed in creating art that moves you and others.

      Thank you for your comment Richard 🙂
