OK, these technological times we live in have turned us all into budding David Baily’s, we no longer have to develop and print our photographs in chemical baths, nor do we have to wait weeks for them to arrive through the post.
We don’t even have to think to much about the camera settings, just set to auto and the technology does the rest.
In fact, we don’t even have to look good, we just use some software to brush ourselves up or Photo Shop ourselves into an exotic location we haven’t even been to, we can fake it like the true professionals.
We are ‘Too cool for School’ and can take 1000’s of photographs and save them all on the camera to take home and save to a disc or hard drive or even some remote account to store and we can even ‘Share’ them with our friends on the social media sites, websites and Blogs. So, Robert (for it is I) what are we writing about a Jamaica Photographer on this Blog for? Who needs one?
All of the above is true, to a certain degree it is true but there is one thing the technology will not provide you with and that is the ‘art’ of taking photographs, the experience in light and shade, settings and locations, moods and feelings, this is the trade of the experienced professional photographer, they don’t take photographs, they don’t churn out endless pictures, they use their cameras as tools in an art form that turn a special occasion into long lasting memories, embellished with images of that special time.
You may think your own happy snaps are great but compare to the professional, his use of light, colour and texture and you will see the difference is massive.
