    Random Clicks

    “Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”

    – Destin Sparks

    Photography is the art, application, and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically using an image sensor or chemically utilizing a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.

    From her perspective, an ‘amateur click’ is ‘something’ that she witnesses in the present moment.


    And


    A ‘professional click’ is ‘something’ clicked in the present moment from the viewer’s perspective.

    A professional photographer is ‘someone’ who has learned the technicalities of graphing photos.


    He knows his art or craft and has ‘sufficient experience,’ but he may or may not necessarily enjoys the process.

    A novice is ‘someone’ who doesn’t know the technicalities of graphing the photos, but she enjoys the process.

    A novice enjoys every moment while learning the art and every form of the craft without caring much about mistakes and corrections

    She ‘enjoys it.

    So, suppose you’re interested in having  ‘random clicks’ to capture the moments as they are in their ‘original form’ without any twist or turn, editing, or modification to re-present the Reality as it is, as you witnessed the moment, then for you, this article ‘may be’ helpful.

    Every photograph is ‘unique’ in its sense as it is the projection of the photographer’s mind  ( the person who freezes the frame )
    and her experiences till the very moment when she clicked that picture. It’s an ‘individual’ perspective, and that’s the ‘uniqueness’ of the image…

    To her mind, the same picture for a viewer is a ‘total view’ of her experience and journey’ until that moment.


    That’s the ‘uniqueness’ of the picture, too…

    When we add the word professional in front of the photograph, it loses its uniqueness and becomes the subject of judgment on specific theories, rules, and quality parameters.

    For a viewer, it’s unique because it can be explained in more than a thousand words to release the emotions of her experiences during her journey and can vary from viewer to viewer.

    For a photographer, it’s unique because she has  ‘experience,’ and it doesn’t matter whether she is experienced or not; she is releasing something inside her, which will always be the same for her.

    She will always be the witness to the beautiful moments that are now part of her life.


    Now for her, they are not just random clicks; they are a story that can be narrated through pictures without using a single word.

    For her, they’re not just pics but ‘expressions of the realization’ that can’t be ‘expressed in words.’

    Final note: If you’re interested in arts and wish to start a career in photography, it’s a great start.
