Photos are great for keeping memories alive.  But photos can be works of art too.  Sometimes both come together.  


Here I am posting some photos that I took in an attempt to create art.  I have posted them under two categories.  I am doing so to make a point.  In my opinion, it is not the camera but the person behind the camera that matters.  That has been my playful answer whenever someone has asked me what kind of camera I use.


The two categories I am using are two different kinds of cameras: SLR (single-lens reflex) and iPhone.  With the former you must select some parameters before taking a picture (unless you are using it in automatic mode), while the latter one is a point and shoot, automatic camera.  Have a look at both groups of photos.  Do you agree with me?


One more thing.  Digital photography needs digital post-processing, which is analogous to chemical development of a negative in film photography.  I try to keep digital post-processing to a minimum.  It is a philosophical stance.  I try to take as “good” a picture as possible and keep the need for digital fixing as little as possible.  Others, who are famous and successful photographers, take digital post-processing to great heights and create amazing images.  In some respect, advanced digital post-processing has become an art itself.  But I am on a different path – that of old-fashioned photography.


Finally, a while ago I had a chance encounter with an artist.  That had led to some interesting philosophical musings on photography on my part.  Check it out if you are interested in those thoughts (THOUGHTS ON PHOTOGRAPHY).
