Don’t Try To Be An Artist

Don’t Try To Be An Artist

Gate To Eternity
Gate To Eternity

Don’t try to be an artist it’s better to learn to know yourself and bring that out and express it.
Don’t try to be a photographer, instead be a thief and steal images from reality that make you feel sad or happy or surprised, but if your goal is to be a photographer than you are just taking images to reach your goal of having a title, and you may end up reaching your destination and have a title of photographer but your images will be dead.
Same with the artist, if his goal is to be an artist, then he or she will try with all their strength to impersonate an artist but their work will be just an excuse to reach their goal and their work will not be good.
Photographers are made when somebody uses a camera to keep an image or scene that overwhelmed them and preserves that image, but the main goal is to preserve the feeling and then the image that gave that feeling.
And by doing that they become photographers a title that is not their main goal and which they do not give much importance, it would be a better definition “Feeling catchers” or ” Emotional Events Recorder”
So feelings are the goal of the photographer, just like the video or movie directors goal is to tell a story that will move the audience, if he succeeds in reaching the audience and moves them then he did a good job.
So should a photographer be focused on the image? the answer is No, he should be focused on the feeling the image will produce, Feelings first image second.
Photograph feelings and the images will come.
