Does Having a DSLR Camera make you a photographer?
With the never-ending trends and uprising science and technology, each of us is starting to be conscious and sensitive with what the society that we are currently in has.
If you have expensive DSLR cameras to show off during events and any other occasions, then you are really cool! But, that is just what the society and the world is telling us. It was like having the best batman figure on 2nd grade and was able to participate in Cosplay competition in the 8th grade.
Most of us believe that it is a necessary thing to possess by anyone who wants to be accepted by the society. The truth is those are just the things that fulfill your ‘wants’, not your ‘needs’.
The worst part is some of those who own a DSLR doesn’t really understand how it works and immediately thinks that having one makes them lined with the same level as professional photographers.
Naturally, you will just go everywhere with your camera, clicking some of its buttons, trying to look like you are adjusting its settings, when the truth is you are just trifling with the buttons to check some random settings, and will freak out when you accidentally click a wrong button or be amazed when you unexpectedly capture something that looks great. Suddenly, people with point and shoot digital cameras or using mobile phone cameras are pitiful for just having those and any picture captured by your camera is fantastic.
Well, if you think that having the most expensive Nikon, Canon or any other brand will take you to a professional level, and you don’t even know what aperture, shutter speed and ISO is for. Then perhaps you may have you rethink thinks over.
True professional photographers are committed to the art and craft of photography and expend considerable time, energy, and resources to that end. I think it is the level of knowledge, skills, and abilities that are the defining qualities of the professional photographer.
