What makes a photographer when everyone is taking photos.

Nowadays everyone is able to take pictures and some even believe that makes them a photographer. That doesn’t make you a photographer. It takes time and dedication to master this art and unfortunately today’s technology in some ways is taking away your creativity and the opportunity to learn more about this scary, then yet beautiful art of photography.

When it comes to photography I don’t have a favorite place to take photographs or a favorite subject. There are a lot of things that make a good photograph. You have to think about texture, gesture, composition, and all the things that some of the most famous paintings have.

Technology doesn’t change the way photography is, it just makes it available to more people which means there’s going to be much more terrible pictures taken or pictures that are totally dependent on a subject which is alright.

What a great photographer does is consistently able to make something in a style that’s personal. My pictures don’t depend on a point and shoot system that would make decisions for me. They depend on composition, my creativity and the way I see the art behind the lens.

It is not easy to step out of your comfort zone, but it does feel great when you do and create something unique.
