Photographic Detachment?

An article from a pro photographer spotted on Twitter caught our attention. He was defending his dedication to his craft, attempting to buck the myth photography was not about luck when it comes to seeking out his subject, nailing the image and capturing something beautiful.

From what I remember – I didn’t save the article or favourite the tweet, my bad – he was fed up with being asked by folks, including other photographers, what kind of camera he had because it must be the reason he took such a lovely photo. We decided to take to the mics and see if we can figure this one out.

Ansel, We Have A Problem

As photographers, are we broken? Is our industry broken beyond repair? How can we turn the tables on the industry and get back to appreciating the many photographs which were made from the photographer’s talent, skill and time?

Join the Convo

Have we become so insensitive to photography we are quick to judge those making images, assuming the greatest and latest gear is solely or at least mainly responsible? What are your thoughts?
