  • 1. Photography
  • 2. What Is Photography?
  • 3. The definition of Photography: the process or art of producing images of objects on sensitized surfaces by the chemical action of light or of other forms of radiant energy, as x-rays, gamma rays, or cosmic rays.
  • 4. What Photography Is To me…
    To me it is a art form.
    To me it is a creative outlet.
    To me it is a way to capture people, moments, or scenes you love and want to always remember.
    A way to communicate and get your point across through images.
  • 5. But what is Photography to you?
  • 6. Photography does not always have to be a professionally taken picture. It can be something as simple as this: Capturing the moment Dani decided to steal her mom’s lipstick.
  • 7. Photography is capturing a moment: A quiet summer evening on the lake.
  • 8. Photography is art: You see something that catches your eye, plan out the picture, and snap it.
  • 9. What Others Think About Photography…
  • 10. Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today.
    – Edward Abbey
  • 11. And that desire--the strong desire to take pictures--is important. It borders on a need, based on a habit: the habit of seeing. Whether working or not, photographers are looking, seeing, and thinking about what they see, a habit that is both a pleasure and a problem, for we seldom capture in a single photograph the full expression of what we see and feel. It is the hope that we might express ourselves fully--and the evidence that other photographers have done so--that keep us taking pictures.
    – Sam Abell-Seeing and Shooting Straight by Sam Abell
  • 12. You should never think without an image.
    - Aristotle
  • 13. ...people say they need to express their emotions I'm sick of that. Photography doesn`t teach you to express your emotions it teachs you to see.
    – Bernice Abbott - Art News, January 1981
  • 14. Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.- Dorothea Lange
  • 15. Photography means many different things to many people.
  • 16. So.....
  • 17. It is up to you to decided!
