Sometimes less is more, and this principle is often true in photography. Some of the best methods of creating a beautiful image are to remove distracting elements from a scene or to look at your subject from a different point of view. ‘Embracing Simplicity’ is about connecting with your subject through an open mind / mindful approach to composition. It is about focusing more on the creative and artistic aspects of the photographic craft, and honing your vision for creating strong, beautiful and sometimes minimalistic and abstract pieces of art with the camera.
Bio: Jason DiMichele is a fine art photographer from Ontario, Canada. His creative vision is fueled by his love of the outdoors and explorative nature. Jason’s photographic passions include landscapes, abandoned places, wildlife, and abstracts.
Jason is a proponent of learning the technical skills required to be proficient with your equipment and to aid in the creation of your art. However, he insists that keeping one’s creative vision at the forefront is ultimately most important. “There is always room for our vision as artists to grow and evolve. The camera sees scientifically and therefore we need to see artistically”. Capturing the viewer’s emotion and imagination allows them to resonate with his art with a sense of intrigue. His art evokes feelings of serenity, tranquility, and intimacy with the subject.
Jason is an X-Rite Coloratti, a Hahnemuhle Certified Studio (fine art printing), and a ViewSonic Partner Photographer. Jason has been published in Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), PhotoED Guide, Outdoor Photography Canada magazine, PHOTONews, and has taught many photography courses at Humber College. Jason offers a range of services including fine art printing and art reproduction. He always welcomes the opportunity to teach and inspire others and teaches both the creative and technical aspects of photography through photo walks, presentations, and workshops.
As a photo educator, his goal is for students to come away with not just better photographs, but a better understanding of photography, better compositions and most importantly, a skill set they now have and can use on future adventures
