The innovative invention of camera and photography is a great progress of modern human civilization, because it is heavily branded with the brand of "civilian" as soon as it appears. In the long history, photography is the "plaything" of the rich for a long time, with noble blood.
Photography is the freeze frame of the real image moment, which is destined to be essentially different from other arts. Photography is the moment that determines eternity. A character, a scene, an atmosphere, an instant, is frozen and recorded. This is the meaning of photography.
People will grow old and die, but the meaningful photos he took and the memories he left may never disappear and will live forever. The story behind the photo and its value may deeply affect his descendants. If you can use the camera to find that universal meaning, then you are a photographer. No matter what type of camera you use, no matter whether you shoot artistically or not. As long as your heart is looking for it, you are a photographer.
