Let me give you 5 reasons why you shouldn’t waste any more time and start to live your passion.
CAPTURE A MEMORY THAT YOU CAN HAVE FOREVER
A picture is worth a 1000 words. It’s the vivid illustration of a memory that lasts forever and reminds you of the good old days that sometimes pass before you can even blink. A photo lets us use our imagination and transform our feelings, moods, and ideas into something palpable no matter what passions and professional backgrounds we have.
Creativity exists in each of us, but we just need the courage to set it free and learn to express ourselves through photography. People who constantly say that they can’t be creative, they didn’t even try. How hard can it be to press a button, point it at a futuristic or historical building and capture the view? Trust me, creativity is a powerful skill that you probably never thought you have.
SHARE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
People will always have different points of view. Imagine 100 photographers sitting in front of the Empire State Building and try to picture the results. You’ll see 100 photos all from different angles and with distinct points of focus. One of the greatest capacity of human beings is that we see the world in a unique way and photography allows us to share this perspective with others.
CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF ARCHITECTURE
The main challenge for an architectural photographer is to create images that reveal the essence of a structure. Some photos can highlight the practical function of the building, showing people interacting in their daily environment, while others can focus solely on the shape, details, colors and design elements, portraying a building as a piece of art with no other purpose than to please the eye and mind. The essence of architecture can sometimes be captured in just one frame.
NOTICE THE DETAILS
Photography has a considerable contribution to the way we perceive things around us because it helps us to develop a critical sense and gives us the opportunity to see things in detail. You will suddenly notice that you pay attention to light, colors, shapes, people, buildings, trees, flowers and everything that surrounds you. As soon as you hold a camera in your hands, you start to see the world as a photographer. Keep in mind that details create the big picture.
