Chronicles of a Photographer: Amateur vs. Expert

DSC_3877 Personally, I find it quite thrilling to be able to capture a spectacular shot when there are challenges around. We all know that taking pictures could be done by simply anyone. Our thought about this is usually: just pick up a camera, aim it at something, and click the ‘capture’ button , right? While this is in part true, there is a lot of practice and learning in film and photography that one must dedicate time to in order to obtain high quality results. You’d need to learn when to shoot, how to shoot, and why you are shooting to add meaning to the photo. Experts could spend a lot of their time waiting for the right moment to snap a picture, but just like new beginners, amateur artists tend to wait less and shoot more.  Usually, as an amateur I would snap tenths of pictures hoping one would come out perfect, but now, I have learned my lesson. I am an expert that understands that waiting for the right moment results in a higher quality and more significant photo than just shooting uncontrollably in hope of a great shot. An amateur photographer could feel like every shot taken is a perfect shot and may not want to delete it, but as time goes by and you gain experience, your skills enhance and your knowledge enriches, and you learn that expertise can only be achieved through practice and that every expert was once an amateur.
