Thanks for writing up your message for lesson 2.
I enjoyed reading about what you think about photography.
There isn’t really much I can “critique” here so I will just tell you what I think.
Many people start their photographic journey using photography as a form of reminiscence, or memories. Then as time goes on they improve their skills until it becomes an artform and a full blown creative and expressive outlet for them.
You also mentioned that photography can help improve connections with others. I know that whenever I spend time with family and we look at photos together we feel closer so I totally agree.
Photographs are a snapshot in time and they are indeed timeless. This is arguably one of my favorite aspects of photography. The fact that I can click a button and stop time!
Do you still have those photos you took as a kid?
Post them up in the “share a photo” section of this site!
One thing that I think you should look into is finding inspiration from other photographers. In that regard here is a list of photographers you can research to learn more:
Lewis W. Hine
Julia Margaret Cameron
Michael K. Brown
Eadweard James Muybridge
Thanks for this!
I look forward to your future submissions!
