TOPIC: is it art?
#10171
is it art? 7 Years, 5 Months ago  
I read a great quote recently which said telling a photographer that his camera takes good pictures is like telling a chef his oven cooks good meals.

I know from personal experience the different values people often place on the various things I do and photography tends to be down the list compared to my drawing. Now either I'm a crap photographer or people don't as a rule see it in the same way as other art forms.

What's been your experience and how do you deal with it?

I definitely think it's an art. My father was a photographer and it was like getting inside his head sometimes. I would look at something and then he would photograph it showing it in a particular light or angle and that would make me look at that thing with a whole new perspective.

Being able to capture just a fraction in time so that it 'speaks' to people sure is an art form in my opinion. It shows huge skills in observing the world around you and also great sensitivity to know when exactly to take the shot.

Thanks.

I picked up a friend from the UK who came and spent some time with us and driving him home from the airport, he was looking at the countryside and pointing things out and marveling over all the beauty around us. I had started to take all that for granted and it dawned on me that I was suddenly looking at it from his eyes. I'll never forget that moment and I really try not to take things for granted now.

I am not sure which tears me apart most, not being able to get out and photograph or not feeling well enough to sit and paint.

Are you asking is photography art?...I had not considered it was not art. That magical moment when you see an image in the lens and the light is dancing something just shouts look at me I am fabulous, you press the button and a magical image is created.
