Recently, photography has become almost as widely practiced an amusement as sex and dancing – which means that, like every mass art form, photography is not practiced by most people as an art. – Susan Sontag.
If you tell someone that you are a photographer, you’ll likely get a response like “Oh I just LOVE taking pictures – that must be so much fun….”
And, truth be told, it IS fun. But it can be a lot more, and to get to that “a lot more” takes work. And frustration. And rejection.
And that’s not fun.
