Photography takes essence of every art form there is. Art has been around for almost the entirely of history of making. Photography is more than finding an angle or idea. It is more than just taking the perfect shot. In this age and era, post production editing matters the most. That’s where a photographer has to be multitalented. He/she should reach beyond one dimensional thinking process.
There are various things for photographers to learn from legendary masters of painting. They ruled these seas centuries before first camera was built. Leonardo da Vinci mastered the art of interpreting light through his artistic abilities. His technique was the accidental precursor to HDR of today.
Using color to separate background from foreground or vice versa is a recurring theme in painting.
Photographers will appreciate the benefits of learning painting first hand. It is the most effective way for photographers to master the complex concept of composites.
