Is photography as an art overrated

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் நவம்பர் 10, 2007

Ammani has problem with accepting photography as an art.

I mean, where’s the effort involved in putting together a piece of art?

is her question.

 http://photography-in-tamil.blogspot.com/ is a Tamil blog which conducts monthly photography competition for Tamil bloggers. Most of the entries are less than amateur quality in my opinion and most of them invariably seem to edit the photos using a photo editing software even the “experts” of that blog advise the entrants to do so. Being an image analyst myself, who once taught digital image processing, I am certainly not against editing a photograph. Even most of the winning entries of their competitions are less than amateur type imo (I am asking for trouble if you ask me).

Within the limitation of my limited blog reading, one particular photographer has always amazed me with her eye for composing beautiful frames with otherwise very ordinary content and it is none other than our fiction fragment and poetry famous Neha. Take this one for example and another example

The whole collection of her photographs, value accentuated by her fiction fragments and her poems.

    i see photography as an expression art….anyone can take a photo,but then how they took it and where they took it and what they took become important….i
    i don’t like to take photos of family and people i prefer to take nature and things which catch my eyes…i don’t believe in editing a photograph,it looses it effect…as for the flicker lings the phots oare amazing!!
