|Gordon Parks, 1963,|

Instead of studying just any photo though, it would be best to start with a study of photographs taken by some of the great photographers.
I'd suggest that you find two or three great photographers that can serve as your mentors. Start by visiting the Masters of Photography site. You may find other similar sites online.
I'd encourage you to consider Gordon Parks as one of your mentors. In addition to being a photographer, Parks was an artist, a composer, an author, and a film director (e.g., Shaft).
See the clip below from about 11:58 to about 19:00. Wait to view the rest along with a future blog post.
