This didn't really start off having any meaning to it, just me messing
about with some self portraits.
Ended up turning into a bit of a statement about photography and how people see it, always being asked what camera you have, as though that's what's important. I know most people don't mean it with that intention, but it gets tiring after a while.
It's like asking a painter what paints he uses and how much he paid
for his brushes, It's like a lot of people don't really think there's
a skill or talent behind photography.
I always find my self showing off and talking technically about photography, due to the fact that poeple just assume you're kid with a camera, it's hard to be taken seriously without showing your work.
A camera is exactly like a paint brush, anyone can be an artist the same way anyone can be a photographer. Anyone can pick up a camera and take pictures anyone can pick up a paint bursh and paint.
But just like art and and painting, it doesn't mean that what you put on that canvas will look right. Same with photography, it's just much easier to do so, but harder to get right.
It's all in the detail, anyone can take a picture, but not everyone
will know how to get the little details, the lighting to change, lens
flare, depth of field, colours and so on.
I guess it's not much of a big deal, I think just like most things technology has made it avaible to the masses and the artistic sense in the medium and been diluted.
