The Simple Reasons Why I Love Photography?

Let me walk you through the reasons why I love photography. Let me count the grounds at why I’m hooked into it.

Wikipedia defines photography as follows:

Photography is the process of recording pictures by means of capturing light on a light-sensitive medium, such as a film or sensor. Light patterns reflected or emitted from objects expose a sensitive chemical or electronic medium during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a device known as a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically.

Oops, that’s quite too technical, huh.

Anyway, in an effort to dissuade me, Erwin asked me why I’m so fond of photography, what will I do with my photos after I took them?

For me, I find it an inner satisfaction to document everything around me in clear and crisp pictures.

I find it the simplest way at which I can express my creativity, and uphold its status as an art.

While looking at the pictures in magazines, books, billboards, etc., I want to replicate them in my own simple way.

In everything that’s happening around me, I wanted to capture that decisive moment:

Or freeze the action, as if stopping time itself:

Or maybe even convey the emotion in that particular moment. To document the face of:

  1. hi, saw your blog at photography voter. To me, photography can, apart from the points you raised and other purposes, turn a moment into eternity and when I at last captured something I longed for, I would be very very excited with it.
    That said, I would like share a photo taken recently–>

    please copy the link to view it.

  2. Hi Kriz, thanks for that contribution. That was a nice picture though some more post processing can enhance the color and overall image. You see, I’m not an expert in post processing, much more in photography itself… But I’m trying hard, you know..hehe thanks again!
