Q1. What are your values for your photography and how do you measure and evaluate them?. (N. Rogers. U.K.)
A1. The values of my images are personally measured with integrity, honesty, authenticity and trust, based on my own known values of morality, integrity and ethics. However, my owns values are not subjected onto others, my images portray my own unique opinion within my own boundaries of creativity and art. (Nick Elliott)
Q2. Do you always see photographic opportunities wherever you go? (J. Brewer. London U.K.)
A2. Yes, pretty much. There is photographic opportunities out there wherever you look, but opportunities to create art are sometimes limited. It’s a representation of oneself, and what you see individually that sets us apart, it’s the opportunity to just take a picture of a moment, or create a piece of individual art, and all art is subjective. ( Nick Elliott)
Q3. I find your recent dark art project is quite intriguing and I’m looking forward to viewing the whole collection. Is this the direction your art is going in now? What about the fear of failure or rejection? (V. Huber. Manchester U.K.)
Q3. Yes it is the direction that my art is going. Creatively this is something that I have to explore which has previously been denied. Unfortunately the fear of failure and rejection is something every artist has to live with because it’s inevitable as art is so personal. If my art gives me satisfaction and evokes an emotion from its audience, wether that be positive or negative, then I feel I have achieved my goal. Art is designed to stir a broad range of emotions from its audience, from repulsion to inspiration. No art can be classed as rubbish, it’s just personal to the viewer wether they find it intriguing and captivating. (Nick Elliott)
Q4. What type of camera do you recommend for an amateur photographer? (J Snow Wales UK)
Q4. What ever one the photographer feels comfortable with. It’s a personal choice. The camera should be an extension of your body, considering balance, weight and even how you carry them. You can create a fantastic photo on one of the most inexpensive cameras, it’s all about your eye, the opportunity and the camera being an extension of you, and how comfortable and capable you are with using it which leads to proficiency. (Nick Elliott)
Q5. I’m struggling with my photography. I can’t seem to make the most of natural light and when I use the flash things look washed out. Have you any tips? (D. Rivers. Birmingham UK)
A5. They are probably washed out because they are overexposed. Shooting on manual brings its own problems, capturing natural light is a technique in itself. You need to know and understand how your camera reads natural light, all different makes of cameras read natural light differently. This is what makes film photography much more difficult than digital. Always shoot on manual, understand your cameras capabilities and bracket your shot. Experiment with lots of different natural light situations and practice. This is all part of the creativity and fun of photography. Hope this helps. (Nick Elliott)
