For some people, taking a selfie with a good angle on a mobile phone is enough for them to be called future photographers.
But you know what?
There’s more to photography than it seems.
You see, it’s not just the angle that makes a photograph great. You also see, it’s not just the gadget that makes a photograph great. You even see, it’s not just the motivation that makes a photograph great.
It’s about the current emotion.
This goes for both the photographer and the one who is being photographed. Every moment captured by the photographer stems from the fact that the one who is being photographed is currently feeling happy – let’s say, because of her upcoming wedding. Every moment captured on the one who is being photographed also stems from the fact that the photographer is currently feeling excited – let’s say, for the upcoming wedding. Otherwise, every moment captured will reflect simply on what both parties have been feeling lately.
It’s about the right lighting.
In photography, lighting is described as the use of light to show certain effects on a visual representation that can either be practical or aesthetic. What most people fail to realize, however, is that lighting also represents a photograph’s soul. It’s what makes a photograph an inspiration. It’s what makes a photograph an enigma. It’s what makes a photograph as radiant as the sun. It’s what makes a photograph as special as the moon. In other words, it’s what makes a photograph worth sharing for other people to see – and most of all, for the entire world to see.
Indeed, there’s more to photography than it seems.
