2022 Photography Ideas #18 Recreate a Photo You Like

Sometimes you’ll see great images that make you wonder what techniques the photographer used. The best way to figure out is to try recreating the photo for yourself.

This is similar to how many artists will attempt to recreate famous paintings from scratch, learning new techniques along the way. That’s the goal here, too – adding new techniques to your toolkit for later, not trying to steal someone else’s work. It’s disingenuous, and perhaps copyright infringement, to publish your version of another photographer’s image while passing it off entirely as your own.

Then again, you also don’t need to recreate an image you liked without any modifications. You can attempt to recreate an image you love, but adding your own spin means you still learn the same skills, but with an image that is more of your own.
