I am so sick of these little feeble-minded maggots with their 10 year old mindsets. Photography is hard, I've seen my friends do it who are good at it. I'm horrible at it; but I gotta say I feel bad for photographers because they have to deal with so much shit from other people. Like take for instance, "Oh its just taking pictures, its not art." *bitchslap* IT IS ART! Just because they aren't drawing or painting something does not mean that it isn't theoretically "art". Many people have a different definition of art. Photography is hard! I don't think people realize this concept. Its not only editing the photo. You also have to make the perfect scenery, make sure you have enough light, and enough shadow. A good hue of color etc. Its more than taking pictures and its harder than these so called "art critics" say it is. I am so disgusted with this mindset. I think they we should take all these ignorant, illegible, sad excuses of artists and give them a photography boot camp. Let them see how hard it really is. Maybe they'll actually have something to whine about. I am just so tired of all these "faingirls" getting credited for their creepy yaois of sonic and shadow the hedgehog. Or their sasunaru bullshit. But if a photographer takes a picture of a cute, cuddly, kitten, or a beautiful girl in an elegant dress, they get no credit whatsoever. Because some n00bish maggot feeding off of the juices of roadkill has to step up and say "Its only taking a picture." Well lets see you try it, try putting up with a model who is a bitch who yells at you for taking the picture of her "good side" wrong. Not to mention all the asshole film directors that will be rubbing it in your face and saying how they make more money than you. Which is sad, I find more symbolism in photos than I do in movies these days. All the movies are beginning to suck now. Pfft, going postal? They should change the expression to going photographer! I wouldn't be suprised if a photographer who had a bad day came into a photo shoot and killed 20 models for all the crap they put up with. I really appreciate photography, I really do, but I would never have that be my career. Not for all the money in the world. Too much stress, makes being a postman sound easy.

Yep it is art, I have taken three years of photography which they had an art teacher teach so I always just assumed. Though I don't think it is quite as effort based as many other arts. Photography is a lot about having a good eye and understanding what is needed to compose a strong image one that will last in someones mind. Black and White photography is so much more difficult than color photography because colors can make a weak image appear strong.

art is practiced and perfected . . .

life is art.

some people paint thier lives hurriedly- messy & scribbley with a thick, black pencil on a white background.

others, they choose thier canvas carefully. they choose colors that are vibrant and full of meaning; they stroke & brush with care & paint thier lives like a sunrise: colorful & rising & falling & full of so many brilliant things.

uhm, yeah.

life is art.

Yes photography is art

Anyone who disagrees should take a look at these artists
http://zemotion.deviantart.com/
http://koukei.deviantart.com/ <--- my personal favorite right here
http://pelicanh.deviantart.com/
http://shy-too-shy.deviantart.com/
http://hakanphotography.deviantart.com/

EDIT: Also consider Annie Leibovitz who is considered the expert in the field. If you've ever looked at a magazine cover, chances are you've seen one of her pictures. Rolling Stone is particularly fond of her photos

I say, Photography has been stained with dumb angsty kids running around shooting random shit in greyscale macro. It's boring and lacks originality.
