Photography, the art of taking and processing photographs. A moment in time captured through a lens to preserve history, moments of our childhood, a decaying landscape or an endangered species. Not only for the delicate moments of our past or present, but we use photographs to cement the memory of truly epic moments. Be it the moon landing, a rare species or the most beautiful sunset ever witnessed.
“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” — Dorothea Lange
Photography capture what is unique to one person. A land we will never stand upon or sights we will never behold. A great photograph is the result of thoughtful decisions made behind the lens, not directly by the quality of equipment. It is your knowledge that will define the shot, not the device. Anybody with a camera can aspire to take beautiful photographs. Here are six creatives whose work is worthy of notice and be sure to check out their portfolios.
