| p.1 #13 · Wedding Photographer? Ya' okay! WTF? |
To me, wedding and portrait photography is less of an art form...at least the posed stuff...
I'm really weird like that...I tend to find the posed photos and things that are "built for the purposes of photography" not really art. I even include much of my own work in this "not art" definition.
For me, true art lies in the candid, the unplanned, and the unexpected things that are captured in their state of nature...much harder to come across for sure...
You should spend a few minutes over in the wedding forum perusing around. I'd be surprised if your mind wasn't changed, at least a little, there are some true artists over there. The wedding dudes are pretty amazing, when you think about it. They have to be good at portraiture, candids, architecture, and product photography. And they do it all in a time crunch, with their clients watching every move they make, sometimes having to intervene or calm nasty situations, etc. And yet they still crank out some amazing photos.
I often feel like those guys get a bad rap, and are some of the most talented, artistic folks in the field.
David is my dude.
Well said. Well said.
Anyway. Who cares what kinda stuff she has or how she sets her camera? Why be worried about it? Their are posers in every single industry on the planet. Some make more money than even the greatest "artists" in their industries. Worrying about it is only going to make you lose sleep and get distracted from taking pictures yourself.
