What has photography become to the public?

I mean , it used to be the art of using light to capture an image , art , and who knows how many other nice things . now , the public are thinking more gear wise such that when i ask people "what do you think of photography ? " the most common answer i get is "woahh .. expensive hobby " (as in people are more gear oriented) :dunno:

what are your views on this?

They are called Camera man.

Have you ever been to a wedding where the mother in law kept shouting across the hall "Camera Man, Come here take picture now"!

Back on topic, it is a norm to see DSLR held by 10yr old to 88yr old these days. Photo art is not for everyone to appreciate.

Sometimes, it becomes a nuisance when too many amateurs are shooting at one subject. Sophisticated camera is a toy of the modern era after handphones and mp3.

The only time when people are regarded as a pro when the "pro" has a super huge camera, super huge everything. Size does matter after all! LOL

And when one carry a 30yr old Leica, the auntie will say, "this guy still use a cheap camera, dont even have color tv screen behind."
