Creative techniques and subjects can range from bringing abstract ideas into a visual form, taking a concrete idea and making it abstract, relating or associating unrelated concepts into a visual space, or, in short, taking a fresh look at and lending the photographer’s unique thinking and vision any subject.
When evaluating the creativity of a photo, ask yourself:
- Does the photo disclose more about the subject, or show it in unexpected ways?
- Does the photo relate visual elements in unusual and intriguing ways?
- Is the photo interesting and fresh, or is it just too weird for words?
