Photography Is Art

Photography is art. As a photographer I am an Artist. An artist is someone who looks at something and ultimately see’s something completely different than the next person. Which is why being an artist as a photographer is unique.

There are many photographers, even more so now that DSLR’s are very common and alsmost a staple in every household with children. This was my reasoning to purchasing my first DSLR. Although many think there is incredible compeition within the Photography industry, I am beginning to see the exact opposite.

For me Photography truly is an art, some where I take the fine detail, pay very close attention and get an eye for the image before it is even captured, whereas other I embrace the whole picture and get a feel for everything going on in the environment of the photo to be taken.

As a photographer we all have our own style, our own way of interpreting various styles of photography – mine being candid & lifestyle. Which is also a relfection of me as a person.

Just like many artists, including music, I thoroughly enjoy the talent of another photographer and their view on the world and their subjects. Being a part of our local Camera Club has truly been an amazing opportunity to get to know other very talented Photographers in our own surrounding area and appreciate the beauty of their own art.  

Your Life As Art Photography came to me as I was thinking of a way to describe MY photography… My Photography for myself and my family truly is an artistic display of our family. This is where my website name came from www.yourlifeasartphotography.com

My blog, if you would like to follow, is www.pamelazmijablog.wordpress.com

My blog is a way for me to showcase my photography of all forms and… levels. From myself, my family, still subjects, animals and any clients.

For 2012, rather than going forward with growth of my business, I am going forward with growth in myself, my family and my photography. What does this mean? I will be taking on a very limited number of sessions so that I still enjoy the beauty photography provides me for my own enjoyment and family.

 
I am a wife, mother and most importantly ME!

What makes ME? My love of memories, photography, my family, husband, children, wine, music, cooking, boating, outdoors, warm sunshine, sweet light, green grass, beautiful landscape, the beach, water, my pets, animals. Not all in that order but its all a true reflection of who I am.

 
Although this decision to take a small step back, may seem … small. I have given it a great deal of thought. Much of this thought going to ‘do I push to grow…’ while also working full time in my family business, or as I mentioned above put the effort into the growth of myself, my family which will then influence my family and perhaps offer me more satisfaction and enjoyment. This is a small step, yet large in my life. I know some fantastic photographers in our area and over the past year have been very lucky to have gotten to know them even better! I would not hestitate for a moment to recommend a fellow photographer if I am unavailable.
 
For me and as a wife and mother I am very satisfied with my decision. Not only does this offer me more photographic time and creativity with and for my family, it also allows me the opportuntiy to enjoy my fellow photographers work even more. As an artist, just like writers block, we too need to get our photographic creative juices flowing again and this is just the beginning! ❤
