Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. Recently, Reddit user 2manytoys uploaded some photographs showing the differences between ordinary people and professional photographers. The photographs show that the photographers can make any normal picture look mesmerizing. It just needs a right angle, right light and just a bit of photo editing. After that, there is a magical spell associated with the photograph. There is just one guideline for amazing photographs- Do not shoot what it looks like, shoot what it feels like.
Something that may look like a block of flats with some trees next to it to an ordinary person, could look like a abstruse forest to a photographer. And yes, any photo looks better when edited, but let's face it, not everyone has an 'artistic eye', which is much needed in photography.
The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it? You just need to focus and capture the beauty. The above photograph taken by a professional looks just amazing.
To take photographs means to recognize simultaneously and within a fraction of a second, both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning.
Photography is about putting one's head, one's eye, and one's heart on the same axis. The above one is so alluring. The picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.
