View Full Version : My photo-art idea

here my 2 cents on photography philosophy ...

I got my first camera when I was 15 years old, I was following just some ideas, some images traveling around Europe.
Immediately I realized that travels and photography were totally and intimately connected.
What I do believe regarding photography, what is really unique making a photo and what I look for when I click the button is the moment; the unique and unrepeatable point of view.
I don't mind about how you made the photo, how ethical is to modify a photo with a computer or in a lab, how important is the technique. What I do care is hunting the perfect instant, I'm trying to stop the unrepeatable second forever, a unique solid crystal that remains in the Sea of the time flow.
My idea regarding photography maybe is an old school style view, but I think that it does not matter so much the theory, the sophistication of the camera. I know of course that quality is important, especially for a professional, especially for the business and the market, but finally there will be always someone that can make the shoot better then you.

What is really art, in my humble opinion, is that no one will be ever able to fix the same special and unique moment, no one will be ever able to have the same instinct and sensibility. So, together with the moment it follows, with the same importance, the light, the amazing light of nature, the colors, the contrast, the blend, the intensity.

I just moved in June 2009 to digital Canon 450D and right now I'm still discovering the enormous potential of a digital camera and I'm really amazed. Probably is just the dawn of a new age but, beside the digital revolution, a photo does never comes to life for real until printed it. ...
