What Photography is all about?
>> For me photography is an art through which we interact and observe everything around us. It’s like talking with nature or living and non-living things with the help of one tool i.e, camera.
According to science –
Photography is the story I fail to put into words.
– Destin Sparks
The purpose of photography can vary on what the photographer is trying to capture or achieve. For example, media and news photographers capture images to provide all the details of events to the public, while nature photographers always have the aim to capture the beauty of nature which are covered by the beautiful sea, sky, trees, etc.
And also the purpose of photography can be explained by only the photographer according to there subject because every photo a photographer captures has a different purpose or meaning. As I am also a simple photographer who does not have so much experience of photography but I love to do photography. I also capture pictures with some purpose in which mainly the subject matters to me and I mostly love to capture nature shots (nature photography).
