This is an interesting article featuring current photography trends. Though we see these done and overused all the time, and may be a bit cliche… it is hard not to love them. I believe there is a reason most of the examples are so popular. But a good artist is a pioneer, willing to try what has never been done before. A true artist does not settle for where others have been, or even where they themselves have been, but is always looking ahead to pioneer the art world, and go where other artists have not gone before. It does help to study where photography is now as well as where it has been in the past to help you be a well rounded artist… and there is nothing wrong with having fun with trends, as long as you do not limit yourself to them. It is always better to have a reputation for being a trend maker than simply a trend follower.
