What photography clichés do you avoid?

All Topics

This will make me sound like a total snob, but I actively avoid iconic locations. It has nothing to do with their beauty; after all, the places are iconic for a reason. But I personally don’t find much artistic satisfaction in photographing a spot that has been shot a million times. At that point photography becomes less about personal expression and more about who happened to be there with the best weather. I think about it a little bit like cover songs: If I cover a Beatles song I know I will have a great time singing it and I will produce a song that everyone already knows and already likes. But whose artistry am I expressing in that situation? Ultimately I’d rather record my own music; even if it doesn’t turn out as good as my Beatles cover, I can take pride in my own creation.
