Photography can be defined as the art, process or job of taking and processing pictures with a camera.

MerriamĀ – Webster dictionary defines photography as the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor).

The journey begins in the mind. You, first of all, create a mental picture of what you want and then create it physically with the tools (camera) you have in your hand.

Photography doesn’tĀ just start and end by taking sharp and well-exposed pictures. Also having the best of tools doesn’t also guarantee excellent results. Just like any art, it requires a tool. In this case, the tool is the Camera. To use any tool effectively, it also requires skill/technical know-how to create outstanding results.

Unskilled attempts at photography results in a boring outcome. As a beginner, one may be thrilled by picture clarity and exposure; but as you advance, you start paying attention to details, the kind of images you create and what they stand for.
