    ... because some of those terrible shots will have real meaning. I'm continually amazed at how many of my (insert any relations hip here - wife, mother, child)'s crappy photographes get copied and distributed, and are received with genuine glee by the recipient. A huge part of photography is memory saving and memory sharing... neither of which need to be of photographic high quality. Another huge part of photography is being individually expressive... however that may be done. Live and let live!

    I have to admit, I do too (actually, they are very good) but by my comment a page or so ago, I didn't want to use your work as specific examples. I wanted to use photographs that you would consider worthy of purchasing as a fine piece of art.

    its obvious to me that everyone who picks up a camera has different reasons for doing it.
    in addition to boredom, i find images with blur and grainyness and distress to be more interesting
    more challenging to do than "straight" photography ..
    In line with what's been concluded so far then, some kind of reaction towards a norm.

    Another interesting point indeed!

    But as a group, aren't we supposed to have discourse and amuse each other?

    i don't think i am doing it as a reaction to the norm, more like a creative outlet.


    i hope you don't think i was being negative about your work
    i enjoy your decisive moments ( well seen, well framed, well presented ),
    but sometimes its ok to wear pants that have ripped knees.

    ludwig mies van der rohe once said less is more ... he was speaking of romanesque, richardsonian and 19th century early 20th century
    art nouveau nearly baroque architectural ornamentation ... but the way i see it, sometimes less can be something other than ornament
    it could be contrast, focus, grainlessness, pure blacks and whites ... you can also read it the other way, less fuzz more focus

    There's probably loads of other threads you can participate in instead.

    No worries Jnanian, I don't perceive any comments in this thread regarding my work negative, au contraire, thanks for the heads up!

    I appreciate your posts about your work and how you experience doing it and why etc. and find it to be a valuable contribution to the discussion!

    Agreed! There's many of us around here, all of us with different needs and wants, if some are amused by discussing a certain subject and some don't, it's a free world (part of it) and there's threads enough for all of us, if not, there's a "New topic" button as well..
