THE RANDOM SHOT
Eric Kim burst onto the photography scene a few years ago, becoming a noted street photographer. Following his photographs, career, blog, and philosophy since then, resembles a bouncing ball. Some like his work and some don’t.
Occasionally though, he comes up with interesting insights into photography. Such are his thoughts about “The Random Shot.” The unique scene you come across that does not fit the theme of your work or outing. Do you take the photograph or not?
His answers is you should. If for no other reason, than it has spoken to you in some way. You sense the art there, but don’t completely understand the beauty yet. Besides you stretch your creativity and learn more about your camera.
He discusses all this in his podcast “The Intrinsic Joy of Photography.” How art can be found in all things a photographer sees.
