Photography as an expression
Some says that photography is a career opportunity, some says, photography is an inspiration, others says as hobby, etc. But basically photography is an expression, expression of the photographer.
Based on that we already could estimate what kind of picture will be the result of that photographer, the good, the bad, his/her emotion, all of it express in his/her picture. Looking for original expression? Its easy actually, seek it in wedding party, you will find couple of people in wedding party dresses with joy upon their faces, its an expression that are worth. Some natural expression you should get when they wearing their wedding accessories. If you’re asking me where to look these couple, try to find it in some shop and stores that offers elegant wedding shoes. You will found a good expression from them.
Shooting an object is not just recording it based on what we see, but most of it because of what we feel, that’s an expression. Spent more time looking at your environment, and you’ll be shock that inspiration is not something precious, it could come everywhere near you live.
If you’re deciding making your photo more personal, its better spent sometime alone, when you’re alone, its the best time to know yourself. Don’t care what everyone else says about you, but only God and you know it the best.
Although if you made photography as professional career, you’ll be force to produce image that are much more commercial, but if you put photography as expression, the result won’t be maximum.
Its better to put away other obstacle, listen to suggestion, but later the final decision are yours alone.
