The Four Keys SOP (Standard Operating Procedure)
A professional photographer has to be consistent; he can’t have ‘off days’. To make sure that I am always able to create interesting photographs, I’ve developed the Four Keys Method for better photography.
- Preserve the Scene – Photograph the whole scene as though capturing a record that will later be drawn.
- Focus on Details – Photograph smaller details of the whole scene, maybe macro, maybe not.
- Show the Moment – Things change; concentrate on the actual arrangement of affairs at that instant.
- Go Beyond Time and Place –Create symbolic photographs that could be anytime or anywhere to express ideas or emotions.
