Established in 2013 by MainStreetHost and taken on by Alex Luyckx Photography in 2015, #photochat is a community of photography professionals and enthusiasts who congregate to talk shop and discuss anything and everything photography. To participate in our weekly chat (every Thursday at 1:00pm) search the #photochat hashtag to see the conversation, or find me at @AlexLuyckxPhoto on Twitter for more info. Include the hashtag in your tweets to answer the questions and talk with the other participants.
Our Topic for today, 8 September 2022, is discussing photographic ‘rules.’
Question 1 – What is your first thought when you hear the term “photographic rules”?
Question 2 – Do you view the traditional photographic rules as hard and fast or more like guidelines?
Question 3 – How do you know when to bend or break a photographic ‘rule’?
Question 4 – Do you have your own personal rules with your photography?
Question 5 – Share any photo that you feel either follows, breaks, bends any traditional rules?
