We’ve definitely all asked the question: what makes good art? What separates the professional photographer from an amateur hobbyist?
Today in my digital photography class the professor and TA came around to review some of the photos we were asked to take for our snapshot project. Some of mine were extremely blurry, had no composition, and were just, in my opinion, bad photos. I thought they would just go into the recycle bin.
But strangely enough, the photos I deemed worthless were exactly the same ones that professor took special attention too. I was even more surprised when the TA walked by and also had the same comments.
So, what is good art? Perhaps beauty is in the eye of the beholder? All I know is, I’m going to be taking a lot more blurry pictures.
