20 Pictures That Reveal The Truth Behind Photography


If you still think that the art of photography is a simple thing and everyone can be a good photographer, you are so wrong. Ok we all can admit that in our digital era there are a lot of picture processing opportunities. You can perform a huge variety of ‘doctoring’ a photo to get the result you want to see. But today we’re are talking about photography as hard work – a discipline, that requires good planning, enough skills and time (and no Photoshopping as well) and above all patience.

Real photographers try to take as many pictures of an object to realize several views in order to have a variety to choose from; this affords the chance to pick the best one and achieve a desired result. It is not that hard if the object stands still. But what about action photos where things are moving? A photographer should predict time and take the right shot in the right second.
