A picture speaks a thousand words
Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true.
What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.
There are two people in every photograph: the photographer and the viewer.
Photography allows one to capture the world around him with the press of a shutter. From a scientific perspective, it is the act of recording light either electronically or chemically.
The phrase, “a picture speaks a thousand words” does not always state just a poetic expression. Photography is an exceptional medium of self-expression. It is an art form that demands a sense of technical expertise. An individual who inculcates a hobby in photography can successfully make it profitable by venturing into professional photography, by taking it as a career option.
With the explosion of the communication network, the growth of advertising and media and the fashion boom, and digital photography, it has now become a profession with great commercial value. Photos are an essential part in both print and electronic media. So this is an area offering great scope for those who have an interest and attributes needed to be a professional.
