Season of Photographic Eye - Picture 9
Week 49, Wednesday - The Photographic experience
"In previous post I told you about Roland Barthes, the French intellectual and philosopher, who has tried to explain the essence of photography and devised the term punctum to describe the unique feelings photography can bring up in us. Being especially a French philosopher his writings can be pretty abstract, but I do like what Barthes is trying to explain with his winding words. I myself used this term for my own purposes when I tried to describe what I am (ideally) searching for when taking family photographs a certain sting that makes one see being, life and time in a lucid way. At best, photographs have that sort of effect on us. But what Barthes is really trying to do, is to create a new kind of understanding of photography that doesn't rely on any existing theories of art or cultural studies. [...]"

Season of Photographic Eye - Picture 12
Week 50, Saturday - Fantasies in dark
"With the previous post I wrote about different ways how one can lift an ordinary snapshot to another level and convey that photographic eye into his/her photography. My answers where quite general like constructing a skillful images, evoking reactions and creating pictures that have more than one level of experience. It made me think how I approach the photography in a certain situation myself. How do I find that photographic eye in a practical level? It's difficult to explain really, but here's my explanation.

Season of Photographic Eye - Picture 13
Week 51, Wednesday - Modern human
"In the core of photographic eye is the visual taste. Having a refined visual taste is arguably one of the most important factors that guide one's photography - creative as well as technical decisions. Having a certain taste convoyed through your photographic eye separates you from other people, and in the end, has a potential to make your photography personal and unique. However, it's very difficult to define taste with words. [...]"

"If 'photographic eye' is the noun for the thing I've been discussing for this whole season, then the 'photographic intention' is the verb for the same thing. Couple of post earlier I wrote about 'hunting' for circumstances and pictures that would describe my photographic eye. Now that I have thought about it more, it seems the 'intention' is even better term to describe the process where I try to come up with pictures that exemplify my personal way of seeing things.
