The Enterprise

Taking a picture is freezing a point in time, catching a memory to be preserved and cherished forever to come.   A memory not only of an event but is can also be of a person, or persons to be remembered.  With the modern technology in our devices, camera, or even phone or tablet, about anybody is able to catch a point in time.  To render the emotion and true feeling accurately, a professional photographer is needed.  Indeed, we studied for years and took thousands of pictures to refine our craft.  We know how to “play” or “paint” with light, use it to our advantage to reflect the true emotions of that particular moment.  We know how to avoid “red eyes.”  We know how to compose the image so that it is balanced, well lit and pleasant to look at.  We know how to pose so that our subjects come out to their best even hide a few pounds (without the use of post-processing like Photoshop).  A professional photographer knows how to position without “posing.” He know how to position so the subject is at its best and natural, without it showing “posed.”
Post-processing, Photoshop, has its place and is used to refine the image, just as we used to refine or negatives in the darkroom with airbrushing and pen and ink.  However, post-processing has to be like the condiments in the food, once you taste, see, them, it is too much.  It is to enhance the image and should remain in the background.
Or, post-processing can be used to make special effect, composite or surrealistic pictures, then it is a tool for the creation process and integral part of it.
A picture of the same subject can be romantic, dreamy, photo-journalistic, fine art to name but a few.  How it perceived by the viewer depends of how the photographer captured it.  The setting, light, angle of view and pose of the subject all play a major role.  This is where the training and mostly, experience come into play.  A professional knows how to light, which angle, which setting and how to pose the subject to reflect the chosen style.  Style is also something very personal and each photographer has its own style in which he excels.  Although he will be able to produce a picture in about any style, it will be easier for him in its own style.    
Personally I do not fancy “frozen” images, I prefer the render a movement, either by a motionblur or by the pose of the model or subject.  Motion is the essence of life, it is the main part of the word e-motion. When something really grabs us, don’t we say that we were “moved” by it? Motion reflects emotions.
And yet, a blur or smear is not always needed. Sometimes the angle, light and composition alone are enough for the subject to convey the e-motion. A picture has to render, convey the emotion of the moment without freezing it. But that’s the art of photography, expressing the feeling, the emotion of the moment and thus capture them to become memories to share and cherish.  A photographer does not see the reality, he sees poetry and emotions.
Enjoy and looking forward hearing from you.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the idea of a user in his/her brain that
    how a user can be aware of it. So that’s why this piece of writing is great.

    Thanks!

    certainly like your website but you need to test the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and
    I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality however I will
    definitely come back again.
