With over two billion photographs uploaded every single day onto the web, how can any single image possibly compete?
Let’s put that into perspective, almost every minute of every day humans are taking more photo’s than ever existed roughly 100 years ago.
Unfortunately for the majority of us, 99.99% of those images are literally a waste of time and space.
And just so we’re clear on things, many a ‘professional’ fits squarely into that category.
Now I understand that photography is an art and as such, the beauty is held by those viewing the images but there is a definite line between art and crap. Just as there is between insanity and genius.
DSLR cameras have come a long way over the past few years and are now firmly in reach of most people on the planet.
Why not take a little bit of time to learn what all those dials, knobs and buttons actually do? I guarantee that your photography will take a huge leap to where it should be. It’s not magic, just science.
Now before the enthusiasts get worked up, yes – there is an art to photography as well. I wholeheartedly agree with you. That is not something you can teach. It needs to be felt, learned and crafted over time. However, the technical aspects of what makes one image appealing over another can be learned. And it doesn’t take all that much time to do so.
So, read on if you really want to take your photographs up a notch.
