Getting Pretty Sad Out There

SONY DSC

I have to honestly say that it’s getting pretty sad out there in the world of photography. It seems anymore the moment a person gets a DSLR, discovers depth of field and picks up some software with wicked cool effects they’re suddenly a photographer, a PROFESSIONAL photographer. Even worse the next move they make is opening a photography business because you know, now that they have this artistic ability might as well cash in on in right?

Now the so-called business has to have a name. Nothing original or artistic, just simple and unimaginative. Always the same format it goes as such, *insert name* and then add the word “Photography” at the end. Make sure people know what you’re all about because photography is your business.

I could go on but it’s sad really. I see so many of these things popping up and it’s all about the money and I feel bad. I feel bad for the world of photography and I feel bad for the poor saps who are conned into paying many of these people good money for less than stellar work.

I’d like to see more people get to shooting just because. No real reason, it’s just something they enjoy doing. I’d like to see more simple shots where more thought was put into it than time sitting in front a computer working on post. I’d like to see just pure imagery created and not made because money was its driving force.
