Photography has never been about gear, it has always and always been about how sharp is your capability to capture something in time that will last as an impact for either yourself or anyone else.
without getting into the Philosophical part of it, i would like to start of as what to see rather than how to capture.
like other art fields one of the major aspects of photography is to respect other people’s perspective ! Everyone has a their own way of looking at things.
So the most important part about photography is the light! Light is the single most important factor that says most of what the photographer wants to say through the picture. For e.g Imagine a sunrise picture in your head, with birds flying and greens all around are just getting that little light! even thinking of an image like this can make u feel fresh and stress-free! The same way imagine a dark night picture with a girl in white gown running towards the street with only light hitting her face! this would emote an expression of drama into our visual imagination of the narrative.
This to me is a photograph, that moment which has everything enough in proportion for generating a certain “Feel” to the viewer.
Tip for today : Start observing light, the light that generates feel and makes you think of something less ordinary.
