Let’s first understand why we do photography. We do it because we are compelled to do it. Don’t you think? No one asked you to do photography. No one pushed you into it. No one asks you to set goals like taking 100 photos in a quarter. You won’t get a hike or will not be fired if you don’t do it well, either. Basically, there’s no one watching your back all the time.
Photography is an Art
We aim our lenses to specific parts of the world around us to pick a frame because, in our analysis, that particular frame presents the photograph we wish to take. We can certainly raise the camera, lower the camera, rotate it, pitch it, yaw it, aim at a different part and end up photographing something different thus photography is an analytic art form.
Most of all our photographs share so much about who we are as individuals: what we find beautiful, fascinating, funny, delicious, important, inspiring. They allow us to showcase our personal style, interests, relationships, and adventures, to mark the passage of time. Photo-journaling our major life events is essential, but capturing the daily and mundane has equal importance. The little things that make us stop and stare give much more insight into the kind of humans we are than yet another image of the Eiffel Tower or a beach in the Philippines. It is accessible to so many people and fulfills so many requirements. It’s not just taking photographs any more. Photos are punctuation for our lives.
Every photograph tells a story which wasn’t written in words. And every photograph is not about what it looks like but what it feels like!
And at last, we do photography because it says much about living life the right way. How?
“ Life is like a camera. You focus on what’s important. You capture the good times. Develop from the negative. And if things don’t work out. Take another shot! ”
