True Creativity Requires Originality and Self-Expression | John Neel

True Creativity Requires Originality and Self-Expression | John Neel | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

Photography is a creative process that calls for new ways to see the world.

 

Like all artistic endeavors, photography thrives on new perspectives, new ideas and new ways of expression. A great book, a great painting, or a great piece of music is important primarily because it provides us with something new to see, hear or understand. Most of what we see on the web, in magazines, and even in galleries, looks like so many other images we’ve already seen. Don't get me wrong. There are vast numbers of amazing works being done today. There are real creative people doing really wonderful things. However, at the same time, I see huge numbers of images that fall way short of what is possible. That is the subject of this article. Much of what I see is far less self-expressed than it is a product of someone else's idea of what an image should be.  In many ways, creativity has become the product of an engineer, a camera type, the technology or a social style and less the work of a real artist. Instagram and cell phone apps have contributed to the flood of images we are seeing. Some of it is good. Some of it is great. Most of it simply adds to the confusion. Magazine images, tutorials and 'how to' books have also contributed to the problem.  By watching others, we tend to think that there is only one way to do anything creatively. Easy to produce effects and add on styles are trite in part because the effects are ubiquitous. Hype too, does not make for good photography. Advertising, the king of hype, is a collaborative creation between an agency and a client. It is not usually a product of sincere personal insight. Stylish, hot, cool, slick, trendy and beautiful offer little or nothing else to the experience of a viewer. They offer nothing of reality other than fantasy and diversion from truth. They are usually simplistic and extremely shallow.

Every category of image making is guilty of producing those who follow the trails of others. There are painters who imitate other painters and photographers who echo photographers. There are groups on Flickr and other social media sites, that emulate any number of great image makers. We tend to emulate what we like. In most cases, so did the artists who are followed.

We are attracted to the look and feel, so we copy it and call it our own. While it may seem a form of flattery, it is actually a form of stealing. Not so much from others, but from oneself. It is a robbing of ones own ability to express.

For the newbie, following the lead of others is a way to acquire a useful set of technical skills. Also, in a very basic sense, it is a way to begin the process of seeing photographically. More likely however, it is a way of seeing certain types of subjects as portrayed by their mentors. That kind of seeing may lead to a fairly narrow viewpoint.  I believe that at some point, it is more important to find ones own path........

How To Unlock Creativity

How To Unlock Creativity | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

"Do you know this guy on the left? Of course you do! The man, and in particular that photo, are icons. They represent creativity itself.

Yet Einstein is both an inspiration and an intimidation. His legend, unfortunately, has obscured much his story’s true value. He was, in many ways, unexceptional, but nevertheless managed to see the world differently and led others to do so as well."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:41 PM

Creativity is a word that is often used when we speak about education today. We are told that we need to help our students be creative. The question is how to do this and there have been many articles published about this. 

This post notes that Einstein was not "a good, if unruly, student. He studied physics intensely, worked towards a doctorate and sought out a job as an ordinary physics professor." The important part of that statement is "He studied physics intensely..." 

Many people who we define as creative work intensely in one field, so intense domain knowledge is one key.

Other aspects discussed in this post include the ability to cross domains and persistence.

The final sentence reads "Creativity comes from combining ordinary things in extraordinary ways."

We’ve all heard the preachy platitude “Failure isn’t an option.” And, generally speaking, it’s not. At least not an option most would purposely choose. But failing is inevitable. Everyone eats humble pie in some way at some point, especially in the cutthroat startup race, where half of all of all new ventures crash and burn in five short years.

Shared Roots: MBTI & iStar | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

The Myers Briggs Temperament Indicator and the iStar share deep roots. Both self-assessment tools are informed, in spirit and design, by an ancient but still vital current of thought and practice. It’s called “the four-fold model of personality” and was first developed 5000 years ago. This model correlates the elements with corresponding human character trait: Fire – Choleric, Air – Sanguine, Water – Melancholic, and Earth – Phlegmatic. This is why an MBTI Report and an iStar Report offer comparable insights.
