How noise can diminish your photography
07.22.2019 - By The Perceptive Photographer
This week’s podcast focuses on noise reduction in photography. Now you might be thinking that we are going to be talking about how to use the software in Lightroom, Photoshop or other tools to reduce the noise caused by higher ISO settings in digital photography but that is not the case. I am talking about the noise in our heads as we try to make new photographs or look at photographs.
There is so much rattling around our head when working, and trying to silence the noise is key to creating new work. In our house, the silence was golden, and that is still true today. If we can learn to silence the sound we created, in that empty void, we can create amazing work.
In the podcast, we will take a look at the impact of decision-making styles, interruptions, and how we make choices as ways to combat too much noise in our work. Hopefully, you will be able to find some quiet time and reconnect with your internal process for making decisions and celebrate your process as part of your creative life.
