I did a search on this site, and couldn't find anything, but if there's already a thread on this subject, feel free to post the link... So, anyway, I'm curious to know how other photographers view "photography". For me, I always try to use it to convey a feeling, emotion, mood or message. When I go out and compose a shot, I try to think about what I want to express, and if I'm going about it in the best way. I know I don't always succeed in doing so. :blushing: The reason I'm asking is, earlier when I was checking out local photogs websites, I found myself being judgmental and thinking to myself - that's a terrible comp, or why did they shoot that, or why did they shoot it that way? Then I realized that I was being closed minded in thinking this, becuase maybe they were trying to capture something I didn't see, or something that was important to the client, etc. Or, maybe they just sucked. I don't know...:lmao: Either way, please tell me what you think photography is about, or what it means to you.
