Like any hobby, I make photographs for pleasure and don't really care what others may think about them. Yes, I often do events and give the participants prints and CDs of the photos. It's still 'hobby time' to me, from shooting to post processing to the final products. What one person considers 'art', another may think it's trash. We've all seen paintings or sculptures we think belong in the dump. But it's high quality work in someones' mind. Don't ever let someone else tell you 'how' or 'what' to photograph. It's YOUR hobby/work, not theirs!
