Summary of Key Readings: Photography is something of an art. It is used to capture the essence of reality as well as the abstractness of fantasy. In other words, photography is supposed to be unique in such a way that it envelops the gazer upon the photo's layers of beauty and depth. As said in art's definition, "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination," the photographer should put in as much thought into their photos that is needed for art. A photo should capture the imaginary fantasy that lies inside the photographer's mind. Also, the reality of the message that the photo tells needs to be emphasized. A photo is supposed to be unique and abstract. A photo is supposed to be a piece of art.
In your opinion, what is photography (I’m looking for something more than a simple definition)? --- Photography is the outlook on the world through a different perspective other than the human's eyes. It is a perspective that can be changed in such a way that shows the world's layers of depth. Basically, photography is the art of showcasing the layers of the world. ---
Is photography art? Support your assertion --- Photography requires a sense of imagination. Photography may catch something going on in the moment, but the human person must use their thoughts to analyze and interpret the true essence of the photograph. In conclusion, photography is definitely an art. ---
Ballazs Sprenc -- He is a Hungarian Photographer who likes to capture farms and rural life. He also likes to take different types of pin hole photographs. He strifes to be different.
Improvement Plan: I hope to stay a bit more focused when taking the photo and finding more inspiration. I did not really find one exact type of pin hole photography. I found several. Hopefully next time I will be able to stay more true to the assignment. For example, I did not put a lot of effort into picture taking like I should have. Art takes time, and I did not take the time to make my photo a piece of art.
