Sed Baliem, Native of Atlanta, Ga. and Graduate of Tri-Cities High School of Performing Arts shares his thoughts on;
Is Photography Considered an Art?
To me, photography is the art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place or simply shaping human perception. I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. On a daily basis, I visualize art as if my camera were my paint brush. In photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
