Photography is one of those hobbies (or professions) where people get a little bit confused at what level they might be at. Give someone a camera and they will say they are a photographer, but you wouldn’t pay them to take photos of your wedding. An unskilled camera-man or woman with an expensive camera will take far worse shots than a skilled operator with the most basic of kit.
A camera is a highly complex, sensitive and technical piece of technology that is more akin to a musical instrument than to how most people treat it. Plug an electric guitar into an amp and give it to someone who has never played before. They might be able to get a few, discordant sounds out of it, but not much more. They wouldn’t call themselves a guitarist. Being a photographer is something that takes time, skill and dedication to master – gaining insight into composition, lens angle and type, exposure time and so on to find the very best shot possible. Just as someone who’s never played a guitar before might eventually hit the right note, so occasionally someone unskilled in photography might take a brilliant picture, but we would like to see a little more respect for those who have taken the time to master their craft.
