If you have a passion for black and white photography, does this mean that studying calligraphy (black paint on white canvas) can also give you artistic insights and good “creative cross pollination”?
- Reference old black and white photos of yours which you like, and make a calligraph of it. You can also just refer to your own visual memory.
- When you’re out and about, instead of photographing something you consider beautiful, use your iPad or phone (Zen Brush app) to make a quick calligraph of it instead?
- When we make calligraphs of people, the calligraphs look like people. For example the head, a woman reclining or the shape of a human arabesque.
