This is not going to be so detailed on the history of photography, but it will be an interesting discussion on which you can participate. How? You only need to leave your comment below and we will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
It’s More Than Pressing a Button:
A lot of people fail on this. They think that photography is simply pressing a button and that’s it. They think that by buying an expensive camera they will instantly become talented and seasoned photographers, but that’s another newcomer’s mistake.
Photography is not an art for pressing a button, but due to the technique, patience and knowledge necessary to wait for the best moment to arrive. Photography is one of the activities that require a lot of patience, just like painting. Because you must wait for that perfect moment to arrive, so you can take the best photo.
As you can see photography is more than simply pressing a button. You have to do a lot more than simply this. If that was the case, then anyone could be a photographer. But the reality is completely different. If you want to become a beast of a photographer, then you will have to do your best and stick to practicing quite a lot. If there’s no practice, then there won’t be good photographs. That’s why not everyone can do this, only people who are talented and ready to give it all.
Just like any other form of art, photography is also an area where money speaks. We mean, there are photographs which are sold into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. In fact, here you have a list with the most expensive photographs ever sold:
- Rhein II – $4,338,500
- Spiritual America – $3,973,000
- Untitled #96 – $3,890,500
- To Her Majesty – $3,765,276
As you can see in photography there’s a lot of money as well. It means that there are people who recognize this as a real art, and are ready to pay for the most beautiful artworks.
In fact, the Rhein II is the most expensive from this list and one of the photographs that took care of taking photography into higher consideration, because never before in history a photograph was sold for such a high price.
It happens because photography is a real art and producing these artworks is not easy, to the contrary, it’s very hard. A lot of patience is required, as well as planning and practical experience. As you can see not only a few consider this to be an exquisite art, but a lot of people, and many of them are ready to pay big bucks for the best creations. This is more than enough to prove our point that this is a real art.
