Passion for photographyPosted: August 3, 2007
A sensetive issue was raised by a fellow photographer, which was, does a photo reflect the personality of it’s photographer? I have some thing to say before I answer this, ask any one who is into photography (note, I did not say photographer) , what is photography to you? “it is my passion” 99% of them will give you that answer, the defanition of passion is “Strong and barely controllable emotion” hmm isn’t that personality, it sure sound like it, but lets see it from another perspective, most of us use flickr, when you look in your contact, won’t you know that this photo belongs to that photographer, with out even reading his/here name, that is because it has there personality in it.
For me photography is not a passion, it is my eyes, this is how I see the world around me, freezing emotions with people, making that day live for ever with me throw my pictures, that is my dear friends what photography is about (to me at least), so next time “passion” people have some thing els to say please.
Thank you Samar for raising this topic.
