52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 652-Week Photo Challenge: Week 6 | Artistic: Candy

“WEEK 6: Artistic: Candy: Your artistic interpretation this week should be inspired by something sweet. Therefore, a great chance to play with macro photography.”

So problem number 1: I don’t have a macro lens. And my 50mm will definitely not focus near enough. So let’s just keep this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 6 to artistic and candy and sweet.

Since I don’t have a macro lens to play with, and the main subject is artistic. I didn’t want to take random pictures of something sweet. And it was really hard coming up with an artistic approach to it. Furthermore, in all of the Artistic section of this challenge, you can take the theme literally or figuratively. And I chose the later.

4 Fashion Photographers You Should Be Following

fashion photographersAmong all niches of photography, my favorite has to be fashion photography. So it’s obvious that I follow a lot of fashion photographers for inspiration.

Besides taking a lot of online courses, and seriously considering starting a Master’s Degree in Fashion Photography this upcoming September. The majority of the things I’ve learned about photography throughout the years has been thanks to Youtube.

There are a lot of professional photographers that post continuous content about their real life jobs on Youtube. Providing insider tips and tricks. Experiences. Reviews. Etc.
