Or both, ideally.
You see, it’s like this. You can point your camera anywhere you like, you can stand anywhere you like, you can let the shutter go anytime you want and, so, guidance is needed or you won’t hit the (a) target. The first thing to go after is what you love. If you only photograph what you love you will produce meaningful work. Meaningful to you that is. For it to mean something to others you need an additional guideline of sorts. Mine happens to be ‘balance or isolate’ by which I mean, over and above photographing what you love, make the picture balance or isolate the main subject (isolate against space or colour – up to you).
Or both of course (refer to anything by Henri Cartier-Bresson).
