I follow a LOT of really great photographers on Instagram and other social media. They take GORGEOUS photos. But there are times when I feel like there is absolutely no feeling to the pictures. I am going to go into this in greater depth at a later time, but I felt that I needed to say that just taking a good picture is not enough.
As photographers, we should strive for more than just a technically good photo. We should want to take pictures that stir the viewer’s emotions or in some way truly captures what is unique about the subject.
If we allow photography to fall into merely cataloguing the visual world without evoking feelings, we sterilize our art form.
