Is Photography Dead?

Interesting article on It’s Really Kita, Is Photography Dead? The writer, a photographer himself, discusses the ease with which people now can do photography with pro-level cameras. I liked this quote, though…

“…there is a difference when you give the camera to your more older professional photographer…the pictures are angled differently and they capture better photos…because they know how to capture the raw emotions instead of just snapping pictures.”

During discussions with fellow photographers I’ve gotten into the habit of talking about “the magic”. It’s that special thing that attracts the photographer’s eye and causes a reflexive triggering of the shutter. Sometimes, you don’t even know what the magic is. It just is there. With skill and repetition, you can begin to hone your awareness of it. I guess I liken it to the “raw emotions” in the quote above. Same thing. Magic.
