The Joy Of Being A Photographer

Photography is not only a way to literally freeze a moment in our history; it is also an open window to a world of various philosophies through each photographer’s eyes. It is the perfect medium in which to create amazing visual art. Combining photography and software gives us limitless power over our artistic creations. But what is art? Art means many things to many people; in fact the meaning of art is a philosophy on to itself. Just like politics, if you asked a hundred people what is art? You’ll get 100 different answers; and more than half of those people will insist they are giving you the right answer. Although, I will not lie, if you want to create “good photographs,” knowing the technical side of photography is very important. However, enjoying what you do should take first priority. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, it will show in your photographs. I also think that we should make the distinction between enjoying photographic art, and actually creating photographic art. Just because you enjoy looking at photographic art, doesn’t necessarily mean you now automatically have the “calling” to be a photographer (these are two totally different things). Just be confident in your own photographic abilities; as you learn more about photography, your instincts for knowing when and what to shoot will come.
