thegoldenratio Stamp by ronnietheoutlawtorn thegoldenratio Stamp by ronnietheoutlawtorn
Edit: made it animated by putting sparkles over the word "golden".

This is a stamp for a community that ~rkrangeltari and myself are creating. The community is still a work in progress and is not accepting new members as of now, when the time arises, I will announce the opening in a journal.

~thegoldenratio is a community devoted to teaching concepts and truths through unaltered photography. This means no manips. If you are looking to help others, and advance your skills in the photographic medium, consider joining ~thegoldenratio. :)

The golden ratio... yes and no. It's good as a rule of thumb, but here's a great incident I read about on Ken Duncan's website... (for those who haven't heard of him, Ken Duncan is probably AUstralia's most famous landscape photographer).

The bottom line is: There are no rules. If an image works, it works; if it doesn't, it doesn't.

At one of my exhibitions, a person with a doctorate in photography was looking at one of my shots and I could see she was puzzled. I asked if I could help. "I can't believe this!" she replied. "This guy has the horizon in the middle. It should be one-third sky, two-thirds foreground. But this really works!" That person didn't know I was the photographer, so I simply replied, "Isn't it lucky he doesn't know the rules, or this shot may never have happened."


It is a good stamp though :)

I believe you haven't read the Artist's Comments, for I am not trying to say that there are rules to photography; I merely made this stamp for the club that ~rkrangeltari and I have made. It is a community for conceptual photographers and is called *thegoldenratio.

However, those who follow the "rules" of photography and understand and practice the basics are master photographers; they are beyond the level of plain luck. These people create the image, rather than letting the image create itself.

I read the artists comments, and I know you were not saying there are rules, and I know it is for a club. I was just relating an interesting story I heard regarding that specific concept (the golden ratio).

Ah, I am sorry I jumped to conclusions.
