Looking forward in Photography

“Photography is the process of recording pictures by means of capturing light on a light-sensitive medium, such as a film or electronic sensor. Light patterns reflected or emitted from objects expose a sensitive silver halide based chemical or electronic medium during a timed exposure, usually through a photographic lens in a device known as a camera that also stores the resulting information chemically or electronically.”, says Wikipedia.
Hummmph, what a great jargon is over there. It is enough to change such a lively and practical form of photography into a scorching theoretical and bookish subject. But this is just for a reference purpose. A real photographer never cares about how it is depicted in the definition or anything. Still, his work always reflects how correct this definition is. Photography may not about having a great camera, super-zoom lenses, costliest accessories and heavy lighting equipments. But when you are a professional or struggling to be one, these all things matter as good as your creative eye. One may not doubt about your ability to use up-market equipments but you should always work with them. Being artistic or technically sound is just one other thing in professional globe!
I am getting to know all these things simply because I am going through them. Struggle is not a harassing thing but it is surely equally tiring. But why have I started writing about the bad side first? It has also got a good side. And it relates to satisfaction and overall good feeling when you derive joy from what you do. You ought to derive joy because every bit of sweat you excrete does pay back to you from one day or the other. I have deliberately used the phrase ‘from one day or the other’ because the period before this, is called struggle.
You are just out of college, you know what you do and do it in the best possible way. But all these things are done in college/ institute/ amateur environment. This now starts making difference. Equations change when being professional. How are my equations changing? The answer totally depends on me. How and what things I want to work out. Such struggle makes me crave for more and more work. Still, if I don’t have any; I daydream about what I want to do some day. I know its bad and it takes me away form the reality but at the same time it gives a new energy to fight against all those hitches, glitches and bottlenecks of my career…
