I got really pissed. And I mean, really pissed.


So I was on my computer, posting on here and stuff, when my little sister asks me if I know this one girl (Let's call her C (C is an ugly letter)). I do, because she's a slut in the grade below me (Everyone knows the sluts in my school). My sister then tells me that C says that she's a photographer. I call bullshit. Then, my sister tells me that she takes pictures of flowers.

Flowers.

I learned a lesson from my Photoshop picture a year ago:

Taking pictures of flowers is not photography, and is not art.

My eye twitched when my sister told me this revelation. She then showed me her "Photography" album on Facebook.

Flowers.

FLOWERS EVERYWHERE.

I was screaming "THIS IS NOT PHOTOGRAPHY!!!" at the top of my lungs. Each measly snapshot was the same damn thing over and over and over again- I was becoming literally sick to my stomach. I got so pissed- This is no way photography. No. No. No.

Photography is getting a photo that just...speaks for itself. A photo is something that cannot be re-created and not mimicked so easily. A photo is a memory. A snapshot is just...there.

...It's hard describing what makes a photo a photo, and what makes a snapshot a snapshot, but I hope I made somewhat of a point there.

ANYHOO.

Since I was so pissed off, I ran my ass up the stairs, grabbed my new Rika Furude figure, and went to the arboretum. I took tons of photos, and all of them just popped in front of me. Rika-fever, I say!

I'm going outside right after this to take more photos of her: She's a marvelous figure. So...Rika-like.

But I will never forget the day where my Photoshop teacher taught me the differences between a photo and a snapshot. One exemplifies all the qualities it has, and one is just...there.


And for you people that actually like my Figure Photography and stuff- I WILL update my thread in Visions of the World, but I must download my new camera stuff.
