I think finding the right thing to take a picture of is an art in itself. Yes, anyone can take a picture, and anyone can play guitar, and anyone can splatter paint on a canvas randomly, but photography, music and painting are all legitimate forms of art. Even putting flowers in a vase can be considered legitimate art (ask the Japanese!).

It depends highly on the situation and the person whether or not something is art. Example: I think emo Myspace pics =/= art, but as much as I hate when people paint a canvas with only two colours of paint (Mark Rothko), that's still considered art >_<

I agree with most people here. Art is what you make of it.

I'm getting a Nikon D90 D: Anyone thinks it's a good dslr?

I must agree very strongly on this topic. Whenever I go to an art expo or competition or anywhere in which a reat variety of art is displayed, I always hear one or two people say something amongst the lines of "Digital art is worthless...". They're not just discrimminating photography but all digital forms of art. I always get angry and start yelling at them because photography IS art.

It's the beautiful things in life from the most obvious to the smallest things that people never notice captured in a single frame from a single moment. Sometimes, it makes us realise that the most boring things can be beautiful.

Perhaps... that is why I always get kicked out of those art events...

Yes, no doubt about that. Its easy to take a look at a picture and spill out all sorts of comments on it, but capturing one is not an easy task.
Each photo depends on the individual's creativity. Some may like it and some may not. Nevertheless, photography is still art - frozen memories because they are real, and that very moment of life is turned into a photo.

Photography is an art of perception. An object or scenery can have or change it's meaning by just changing the angle of your shot, lighting, etc. I'm not a photographer, but I do appreciate how they view the world.

I think what the paparazzi are doing is art (not really an honourable way to make money but art nethertheless), they must know exactly when to make a pic, maybe they have just 1/10 second to make a really hot upskirt pic or something like that.

On the other hand, taking a pic of a mountian really isn't that hard. You can take pics all day long until there is one pic you really like - the mountain doesn't run away (well, normally, unless you live in a region with much earthquakes...)

I totally agree. It is an art form and it is hard. I'm still trying on it as a hobby.
