I've only been here a short time, but the feedback I'm getting is heartening, and makes me want to take more photographs. Having an audience and having a community is such an important part of being an artist, even though we make our art by ourselves and largely for our own satisfaction. Painting and photography are largely solitary endeavors. But knowing someone will see the work, and getting feedback (both adulatory and critical) goes hand in hand with creating.
I have a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art. I don't claim to be a Photographer, I'm still learning. But I am an artist.
