There’s so much more to photography than pressing the shutter button. The more you learn about photography the more you will discover how truly complicated it is. Professional photographers will invest a lot of time, money and other resources in order to learn their craft, their art.
Granted, today’s cameras are pretty amazing. Even my 9 year old can take a decent photograph – the key word is decent. A great photograph – not so easy.
Came across this video from architecture and interior photographer Mike Kelley. If you’re interested in photography this is a good video about some of the realities of photography, even if you’re not interested in architecture.
KNOW your camera, what every button and setting does. KNOW light. KNOW composition. It takes time and lots of practice.
