Busted! Don’t Believe These Photography Myths!

Don’t we all wish to hold on to our most cherished memory? But time is a real killer, and before you know it, your moment is past. Photography is worth a thousand words yet the most precious moments are hard to capture. Photographers are trained to have the patience to wait for the right moment and have the integrity to let go when the right opportunity is lost. That is why their work of art speaks of innumerable tales, emotions and events.

Many myths about photography are floating around the internet without a known source, similar to how many images are floating around without the name of their rightful owner. These myths are unfair to the photographer community and discourage photography enthusiasts from fully realizing their potential. 

To help you steer clear of these misconceptions, WDJPhoto has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about photography.

Myth 1: Photography Is Hard
Sure, that is what we like to tell people who don’t think photography is a real and serious profession. But in reality, most photographers chose this profession out of choice, passion, and love for it. Learning photography is similar to executing different projects that either come naturally or do not come at all. So, for most photographers, however taxing the process may appear, in the end, it is all worth it.

Myth 2: Shooting on “Automatic” Will Deliver the Best Results
Photography as a profession is mostly viewed in two extremes. Either you’re a high-end, fancy professional photographer living a glamorous life by making millions of dollars from your work, or you’re simply passionate about taking photos and barely making any money from your work. You can achieve quality work only through your skills, experience, and creativity in both cases. To clarify, the camera’s automatic settings aren’t always the best. You can get some fantastic shots by learning to use the manual mode.

Myth 3: Wall Art DOES NOT Have to Match Your Carpet and Drapes
Aesthetics is all about vision. Though there are indeed no rules when it comes to art, there certainly is a balance of effect that can completely make or break your decors’ aesthetics. Photographers use their skills to create moods and change your interior landscape through their art. For everything to exist in harmony, carpets and drapes need to complement the wall art, or they would appear to exist in isolation.
