    I’m young ( 15 year old teenager) and I always wonder, what will happen to our photos and selfies once we die? There are billions and billion or even trillions of photos and selfies worldwide. What if all of the sudden future generations destroy them? What’s so special about our photos and selfies to them? They will probably laugh. Please, does anyone know the answer? Will all of our photos and selfies really be alive forever??

  • Why do mobile phones find wide angle lenses so difficult?

    We seem to be inundated with claims for zoom lenses on mobile phones, but who wants them? Zoom = blur! But getting everything you wanted included in the photo, especially for inside shots, is a major opportunity every company seems to want to ignore. Why is that?

    Best answer: As others have said, you do NOT need a degree to be a photographer.

    HOWEVER, along the way, taking a class or two can indeed help YOU understand some basic fundamentals of photography, know how aperture + shutter speed + ISO settings work individually and in combination to get a proper exposure while using the camera's built-in light metering (& know the 3 metering modes, average, matrix & spot and when to use each), learn about composition and different lenses and when to use them, how to use light and shadows, how to avoid difficult lighting situations and how to overcome difficult lighting situations, etc., etc.

    You can probably do as I did and read all the books and magazines articles on photography techniques and innovations and go out and experiment... but that's the long way around; taking a few classes will help you avoid pitfalls most beginners get trapped in, and you'll have someone more knowledgeable who can assist you learn from your mistakes, rather than let you continue to repeat them.

    Besides, you get to make contacts with others with your same interests, you pick up tricks and effective strategies on how to deal with difficult clients, and you learn to win people over with social skills. In meeting others with your same interests, you may be called to assist in a shoot (hey, even if you don't get top dollar for that, you gain experience and do make a few dollars).

    I would never let someone drop out of school without me trying to encouraging they finish (at least HS), so they can have fewer difficulties securing a good job with good pay, benefits and security since photography has gotten too difficult to rely on for a full time time... there aren't many if any left nowadays. Newspapers aren't hiring. Magazines aren't hiring, either, so... where do you go for a job? Wait for a "cattle call" and compete with others that are more experienced, more knowledge, skill, trained and talented, frantically elbowing one another aside to get the few rare job offerings? Those that fail to get those few rare job offerings go back to their other jobs in stores, behind counters or in offices or behind the wheel of a taxicab.

  • Do you think we humans are wasting our time taking photos of ourselves and throughout our life?

    I mean if you think about it, all of the photos you take will either be destroyed or thrown away once you die. And I highly doubt that future generations will care what we did throughout our life. So I’m not sure if I should continue taking photos, sometimes I feel like it’s better to just live the moment and... show more

So I’m not sure if I should continue taking photos, sometimes I feel like it’s better to just live the moment and focus on the present. So what do you think? Are we wasting our time talking photos?

  • Is it wrong to copy a photographers editing style and how they shoot?

    Best answer: Fortunately, there is no copyright or patent on "style" or "technique." Go for it, if it pleases you and helps you achieve great results. No one person REALLY "invents" a style or technique; everyone borrows a little from here, a little from there, a little from yonder and a little... show more
    Best answer: Fortunately, there is no copyright or patent on "style" or "technique." Go for it, if it pleases you and helps you achieve great results. No one person REALLY "invents" a style or technique; everyone borrows a little from here, a little from there, a little from yonder and a little from everywhere. EVERYONE, whether consciously or unconsciously... because it's only human. The important thing is that you ENJOY what you're doing, and don't let what others think discourage, disturb or prevent you from enjoying yourself AND developing your OWN style and techniques. Good luck and best wishes.
