Importance of projects.
Sometimes we need to set ourselves a photographic project to give us respite from the grind of our jobs. Sometimes we don't know what to do next, and just need to embark on some kind of journey.
The journey that a project can take you on is always rewarding. Here is a great project that attempts to emulate the light and image style of old master paintings. The photographer has gained an amazing understanding of light and how to apply it to great effect. This is a true learning experience.
The photographic world is better for these having been attempted.
Melbourne photographer Bill Gekas has spent many years emulating the work of old masters and has produced an unrivalled, multi award winning body of work that takes your breath away.
Enjoy these and be inspired.
