    Smile What is photography?

    What is photography?
    To most, photography is a hobby.
    To some, it is an art.
    I would like to think that photography is about passion, it is love and the images are memories captured forever.
    Memories are not meant to be stored in your computer only; it is a joy to share.

    If it sounded like an ad line, it could be.
    I would like to see if there are other interpretations, how you would view “photography”.

    It's all about capturing the light reflected off the subjects to give a image which we can keep.

    "A photograph freezes the moment and stop it from running away."
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    It is the Truth that you choose to see using your lens, freeze, capture and store it.

    A hobby, a passion and a livelihood.

    Canon will pay you well for the catch line.

    Do you have a song to go with it?
