In landscape photography, which is our present subject, there are one or two things that have not been done. For instance, have you ever seen a photograph in which one very common fact in nature is adequately represented舒I mean the effect of storm and wind on an inland landscape? I say inland, because such effects are easy enough in sea pictures. The effect often seen in pictures by Salvator Rosa and Gaspar Poussin. The bending and swaying branches of the trees, the driven sky, and the fluttering garments of the figures.
There are still some who deny that anything artistic can be done by a photographer, but it is my experience that the best painters now call the photographer 舠brother舡 when he deserves it, and recognize that he can put thought, intention, and even a vein of poetry into his work-that mysterious something-beyond the border line of hard fact which is felt perhaps more than seen in a picture. Of course, it is only those who produce art, in whatever material, who should be called artists. Original genius is one of the rarest gifts in this age of imitation.
Get all the lessons you can out of your mistakes, and then destroy them. I once had something to do with an exhibition to which a number of beautiful little pictures were sent by a clever photographer on your side of the Atlantic. There was one real gem amongst them, but the artist had sent several other pictures of the same subject that just missed being perfect. The gem looked like an accidental success amongst a lot of failures. I saw them before the hanging was completed, and took the perhaps unwarrantable liberty of getting the inferior pictures removed.
