“My work finally has a visual voice” – Introducing Federico Rekowski

I have felt a great sense of pride over the last few weeks, when reading the Success Stories that Easy Way students have been sending in.  Thank you to those of you who have had the courage to share your story with me!

As a teacher, there is no greater reward than to hear that my students have taken those tools and techniques and used them to overcome the obstacles, achieve their goals and find a greater passion and joy for the art of photography!

 

That’s enough about me – it’s time to introduce Federico Rekowski and share his ‘Success Story’.

 

Federico Rekowski

My journey began in 2016 where my love for landscapes and for capturing its timeless beauty is evident in my work. This early exploration was more about documenting places, learning, and developing my new craft by capturing the right moment through the lens.

“Now my photography is more than just trying to say something visually.
“My constant search and desire for wanting more from my photography; as well as the need to push myself as a photographer is reflected in the visual narrative that I believe my work has now. The narrative at times reflects my mood or state of mind, yet at other times it simply conveys my pure admiration and love for the landscape as I get caught in the moment.”

This journey has made Federico realise that he wants more from his photographic practice than just taking pretty pictures.

 

I want my photographs to have a voice; to reach out to the viewer and engage with them by conveying visual stories – but what stories, I’m still a bit uncertain.”

By exploring different techniques and drawing inspiration from photographers that Federico admires, he began, once again, to look at the world a little differently.

 

“This is when I discovered movement. From simple ICMs (In Camera Movement), to creating blur and movement in post-production, my work started to transform. I began creating dynamic compositions, which I really feel have the ability to speak to the viewer, conveying a bond with the subject as emotions and connections emerge, taking the viewer on personal visual journeys through time. At this point I discovered that my work finally has a visual voice.”
“The techniques that I have learned through Easy Way Photography have helped me achieve that visual voice that my images needed to engage with the viewer.”

My photographic journey continues to convey my strong emotional connection by telling stories as I explore new limitations and processes.

 

“The time I can dedicate to my photography is limited. So, every time I take my camera out, I try to make it count.”

What drives and excites me about my photography is where my mind can take me next. So, whatever and wherever I am photographing, I want to constantly push myself in-camera and in post-production.



Without a doubt, the technique that Federico learnt through Easy Way Photography that helps him the most is ‘Reveal and Conceal’.

 

“Trying to simplify an image is always a challenge but when it works the results are great!”

Federico has entered many competitions (and done very well too!). He believes that you learn the most by competing with your peers and with some of the competitions also offering feedback as an added bonus, he definitely recommends entering competitions.



“I think my biggest achievement in photography is not the awards that I have won but the fact that I’m happy with my photos. I do photography not to win awards but to express myself through my images.”



“To me, the biggest compliment to my imagery is when the viewer understands the narrative and the intention of the image. A successful image is when you are able to evoke an emotion from your viewer.”

This image is named ‘Blue Sorrow’. This is one of those images where the idea that I had in my mind came through.  This particular image achieved a Gold Award at the NSW AIPP 2019 awards and also won the Illustrative category at APA.
‘Bye’ was the winning image in the AIPP Silver Lining Awards 2021 “Shades of Grey’ category.
‘Dreams of a Summer Night’
Thank you so much to Federico for sharing his inspirational ‘Success Story’. I hope that you enjoyed hearing about one of our fellow Easy Way Students, as much as I did! I have really enjoyed watching Federico’s style unfold over the last few years! Keep up the beautiful work!

Sharing and celebrating success, teaches, inspires, challenges and motivates others to achieve similar goals and we would be excited to share your success story with fellow students at Easy Way Photography.

Perhaps you have succeeded in mastering sky replacements or created your first composite image. Or you have found the courage to enter your first competition.

If you feel that you have succeeded in any way and in doing so, would like to give others a great sense that they are not alone on their photographic journey, we would be excited to share your story. 

Please provide a brief summary of your success story, to be considered for an interview to be featured on the Easy Way Photography Blog, Facebook Group, Instagram, Facebook business page and via email to Easy Way Photography subscribers.
