This, could be a living memory, an awareness of a collective identity woven of many stories.
What really is photography about anyway?
For me it is about imagination, vision and seeing. Before you even think of shooting we envision it in our mind. Bringing that final result with the help of the camera of course is the talent we call a photograph!
It is not about the better gear/equipment we have! It is all about seeing. Seeing things differently. The great painters, they never used a camera! They used their imagination. Photography and painting are the same, or any other art. Each bringing what they envision in their mind, to existence in a meaningful way. Arranging the elements in a frame.
Not a pro myself, the only thing you see here are a reason of the many readings I go through. Doing it as a hobby.
Like Ansel Adams said, A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed. I try to do that in each capture.
I will try to comment back, if and when possible, because I spent sometime exploring the work of other photographers. Inspirational they are to me. If I like, I will leave a comment about what I feel about it, if I do not like it, unlike many I'd not say much about it, rather I will leave without a comment.
