Is it harder for a photographer to put their feelings into an image, as compared to a painter or sculpter? Is it even possible?

Are photographers just stuck with whatever subject is in front of them? What is it that makes some photographs edgy or subdued or bold or alive or soft or happy?

Painters and sculpters have a lot of freedom to present their images in any color, shade or position they want. They have it easy. They don't have to wait for the evening sunlight, for the wind to die down or a bird to face the right direction (without Photoshop help, of course).

Yet, it is exactly these kinds of things that allows a photographer to capture a feeling or a mood. Shadows, indirect lighting, cloudy overcast, billowy clouds, fog and that beautiful warm morning and evening light all bring out emotions of the viewer. Leaving the shutter open a little more than normal adds a feeling of speed.

Aren't you curious about what a different setting does to an image? Over exposed or under exposed will change it, sometimes good, often bad. But aren't you curious? And with digital cameras, all you would waste are a few electrons. Get out there and experiment.

But, I suppose that is what makes a great photograph. A simple, real life subject is shown in a way that captures our imagination and allows us to appreciate the beauty of the ordinary. Turning reality into abstract.

This site lets photographers and artists bid on supplying the perfect picture or art work for a project. Clients put up a specific image request and the artists can make offers of their relevant work and price. There are no costs to the clients or the artists. Interesting.

We have an older version of another brand of one of these. They are a lot of fun. We upload our family digital pictures onto a memory card and the pictures show on the screen as a slideshow. Real nice item in the living room. Everyone loves to see themselves. And this one has a larger screen, a remote control and music. Wow.

In 1993 a survey was taken of over 1,000 families. They were asked one question:
"If your home was on fire, and you had time to save only one non-living thing, what would it be?"
Over 90% of the respondents replied: "The family photographs."
