Think Photography is easy as a pie?

I'll tell you what. Photography is the sum of a good amount of virtues. It is talent and inspiration. Creativity and imagination. Commitment and devotion. Patience and attention. Skill and technique. Team spirit and concentration. Art knowledge and innovation. Also, it requires a whole lotta time. And the list may go further and further.

So before you start judging the others' works, think. Don't go throwing sour remarks. Try to be a little sweet and understanding. And if you don't have anything nice to say, just move on. Find what you like and let others do what they like.

To every photographer who recognizes the need of all above, and never stops learning in the pursuit of those virtues, don't forget to Always protect what is yours. And don't you let anyone underestimate you. For I'm sure you put your mind, and body, AND soul in every single photograph you take.

Heh...  I spend a lot of time looking at photographs, and I even consider myself a pretty decent artist when it comes to clay and sculpture, but I am also painfully aware that I can't take a good photograph to save my life!  I have a HUGE amount of respect for people who can look at a scene, judge the angle, lighting, composition, contrast, depth of focus, speed and then point and click.  And THEN there is the post processing, from full out manipulation to subtle tweaks in contrast and exposure.  If I see something in a photograph that might have been done different, I'm not afraid to make a suggestion, but it is ALWAYS with the attitude that what I'm looking at represents the work of a highly skilled, passionate, dedicated, insightful artist, with hours of hard work.

I really love your work, and I recognize some of the other photos you've got here.  You have a wonderful knack for capturing beauty, and even more important, seeing the reality and truth behind that beauty.  Your work really speaks, which is why I keep coming back again and again to spend time really looking at it.

Hold on to that vision, and please, please keep sharing that treasure with us!   :-)

Blessings!

Truer words were never spoken.  Some times I would really like to tell people to just relax, but instead I choose to turn my head and go on my merry way.  ("Don't feed the trolls.")

You are a lovely girl with much talent.  Thank you for sharing such beautiful photographs with us (in your journals and gallery)!  I wish you much happiness and luck in all that you do.

I totally agree with the points you're making! People think that photography is just point and snap! But there's so much work, time and love that goes into it!


I wish your subjects were a bit more diverse in ethnicities, body shape and features. But, eh, it's your thing. And your photos are always amazing!

sorry if you don't mind me asking, but I live in the U.S. where it's very diverse. Do you not live in a country that is diverse?

Please remember, dear Felicia, that no one in ANY profession can please everyone, all the time.  There will always be critics.  Best to develop a thick skin now while you are young. It will save you from many headaches. You'd the best!  :)

True! Sure, it's easy to take a picture, but it takes all those things you mentioned to make the difference between "just a picture" and actual photography, or as your title says, "beautiful photography".
