Even in the 21st century social platforms, canvas new zealand to resist folly of flood, insist on value meaningful work, it is very difficult, some people choose to go with the flow, some people choose be silent, in photography circle is same situation, are you one of “naive" photographers?
1) Are you still believe in sharing photos is for "happiness"
Originally you hiking wading, the investment of time and effort, canvas prints shooting and uploading to joys shared with others to share the beauty of the world, the fun of photography. But the reality is criticism, arrow through the body, especially if you become popular. Level not enough world class will be sneer at by the dark, even with poor level will also be critical, good attitude will be criticism is not authentic, technology will be criticized the lack of authentic soul, even with soul and feel your affectation.
(2) Are you still stick to the "innovation"
This is a "copy" of the world, but you still insist on the pursuit of innovation, the other people rushing, you don't want to take, even if shoot all want to add new elements, new idea. People will laugh at you silly, because innovation is difficult, it's easy to fail, and one thousand is successful, there will be thousands and thousands of people from you, including before people laugh at you. From photography, to skills, to the composition, design studio, website style will be someone to copy and even people or copied without the experience of the creative process loss, resources can be on selling ads, the more famous than you are.
(3) Are you still insisting image should reflect only the facts?
There are a lot of photographers, reporters, experts will try to crack false figure false image, but you still continue………
4) Will you spend 10 hours to prepare instead of spending 1 hour to Photoshop?
Use Photoshop absolutely is not equal to fault, after the system is just a part of the photography, depending on how you use. And some of the photographers, insist that as far as possible in the early attitude, don't want anything by late repair, because for them, photography is not only "finished goods", and access to process is also an important link of manufactured goods, many hope to show you can do it.
5) Would you prefer to be busy to take the real ecological photography?
Sitting in front of a computer is easy to criticize others pseudo ecological photography, but want to photograph really brilliant works of ecological, actually very difficult, because it involves your understanding of ecology, and endless waiting. When you "naive" waiting for the miracle of ecology, hard to study animal behavior, your photos are ordinary no one praised you, or will end up on the road to compromise. No, there are still many photographers is "naive" only took photos of the normal ecological not strange behavior, and even send pictures don't, but who will remember you?
(6) Are you still polite to share photography, serious and humble attitude?
Has a large number of cases shows online, you quiet and polite s very hard, but you are hot, grandiose, controversial can attract more attention, slightly after a "being" people would accept, landed successfully. So polite to share photography seriously, it is better to mean to criticize other people's work.
Don't get me wrong I laugh at "naive", on the contrary, because there are so many insist on the network of photography, photographers, a lot of valuable information and works will be preserved, rectangle shape of photos on canvas and not always only the crowd booing, error messages and attitude. It's not worth us to appreciate?
