I am quite interested to understand why most of the folks here take pictures?
I personally take pictures to record memories and events that involve my love ones and nature shots to study the behavior of insects and animals. I know I will appreciate them coz they mean something to me.
I see alot of people interested in shooting potraits and events that may not mean anything to them but shoot for the sake of shooting. Whenever there is an event, they jump at it. And when you ask them why they shoot it, they say they shoot because they like to shoot.
I pondered for a while and ask myself this question. Wouldn't that be pointless if the pictures were shot for no reasons and just for keep sake? I mean after a few months/years, I'll feel I've wasted my time. I can understand if its for career sake or a dedicated purpose. But to shoot because just like to shoot, seems strange.
Don't flame me pls. I'm just curious to find out the psychological mind state of the people here in CS.
