~ Someone with a camera in his hands and taking pictures is a photographer, therefore that person is doing photography. ~
~ By that strict sense of terms, anyone would be able to be a photographer when taking shots of anything with a camera. ~
~ So what is it that makes the concept of photography seemingly different from what has been just told before ? ~
~ First, photography lies in what your heart perceives of the world around you from minuscule to immense. ~
~ Followed by the capture of a particular scene with more or less complexity in the technique, position and framing of elements. ~
~ The result is a snapshot of a perhaps memorable thing that can have a bond with your own emotions. ~
~ You also attempt to share your personal feelings and give people wings to travel to the places that you admired. ~
~ The latter might be more successful or not, depending on the universality of the feeling you wanted to share and if that person, with his own subjective view, was sensible
to the aura your soul has impregnated into a simple image. ~
~ So photography is the capture of images linked to the photographer that when shared are timeless portals that makes one see through the author's eyes and reach their soul. ~
This is my personal view of photography : other ones do exist but I think that this one reflects more what the true intentions of photography are.
I also believe that it is a common thing between all photographers, a raw and deep feeling from starter to professional photographers.
To fulfill those phrases, I am sending my regards to all of you who read this because everyone is in his way an artist.
