I want you to consider these two questions…
Does a photographic subject have higher value if it is uncommon?
Would your photography become “better” if you learned how to appraise a subject’s interest value?
These are some provocative questions, and they are both concepts that haven’t been explored much out there in the photography “training” world.
However, when you think about it, the choice of a subject is about as core a skill as you can get!
Question: Is an apple viewed in an uncommon way more interesting?
Question: Does a photo of an apple hold more value (to the viewer) when it is depicted in a way that is not common to daily life?
