Because someone enjoys great photography does not mean that they can simply buy a camera and begin to produce great work. Photography is not only a talent, but it is also a skill. This means that even people that have talent will also have to work very hard to become good at the profession. Photography is like any other art, and very few people are artist. Still fewer people are able to make a living at photography even in a technical aspect. Famous photographers are few and far between. Because of these poor statistics, it is important that people pursue photography because they enjoy the art and the process. The digital format has made the profession more accessible than ever.
Even cell phones are now equipped with very capable cameras. People with an interest should engage others with the same interests. Classes are prevalent, and there are many groups that interested people can join in whatever category of photography that interests them. So much of photography both in producing work and enjoying it is documenting emotion. Because the profession is more accessible through a digital format, enthusiasts can simply focus more on producing good work. In doing this, photographers will continue to become more proficient at the craft.
