Are we really creative?

by Kasia & Mac Sokulski | Shutter Time

About This Episode

We were proposed an idea, the creativity is done, specially in photography. There are so many photos out there of the seemingly the same thing. Same locations, same subjects, everything blends into boring “I’ve seen this a million times”. So the question is are we really creative.
Well if we look at the definition of creative in a dictionary it states: “producing or using original and unusual ideas”. One could say that no we are not creative anymore, because we see the same images all the time, but are they really the same? As we know in landscape photography we will never take the same photograph, because of the environmental factors. Similar yes, but not the same and one could argue that every photograph is original in it’s creation.
This gave us an idea for a conversation about creativity and are we really creative?

Take a look at these photographs.  First one  was taken April 17 2016 and the second one was April 27 2012.  Kasia tried to be in the same location and have taken a pretty similar scene.  As you can see if the object is the same, the mood of each is completely different.  Different environmental conditions, even though these were taken almost the same day, just 4 years apart.

Would love to hear your opinion on creativity and is it really gone?

 

Enjoy, and we will talk to you next week!
