i’m fed up of watching pictures of girls, political propaganda, same temples and such, all over and over again. i wanna see photos of new places, shots from your journey to rarely visited places, NO not ABC or places where it’s in everybody’s reach. Places that are secluded from mankind only where few have been, it could be anything, anything at all. SURPRISE US ALL.
i thought creative photographers are met here, but i guess i’m wrong. everybody’s hungry for likes and comments and to make money, not a single photographer here loves his work, it shows in the pictures. come on nobody’s forcing you to click pictures if you don’t want to, just hang your hammer. and nobody’s going to be a millionaire by clicking pictures. if you want to make loads of money overnight, then you should quit it and do business. most of you here are making this group messy. your posts are not productive, enjoyable, and meaningful. I’m sorry if it hurts your feelings but it’s how i see it, and perhaps so many people here also think so.
photography is an art, it’s a creative field. so go create something spectacular piece of art and amaze us with it, no don’t shoot girls again and again. In order to be creative you have to click thousands of pictures as practice and when you get there you’ll be mesmerized by your work yourself. nobody here wants to stand out in the crowd of photographers, everybody’s regular here, ORDINARY. not ambitious enough to be remembered by their work afterwards, nobody wants to leave a legacy or say talented enough to be Legendary Photographer.
come on don’t shoot the same SH!# every time until you get old and realize you never did/tried to do some thing extraordinary. it will kill you from inside. aren’t you bothered of saving pictures that all look alike all over your disks. try to grow, move forward, excel.
i hope we’ll be seeing a lot of fresh and enjoyable pictures here sooner.
i don’t mean to offend anyone here but i see nobody’s giving a damn about this group being a sheep shed, so i had to say something.
Reply by another member of this group, by Prasanna Singh Karki:
Your definition of creativity seems different than most of us. Just going out to unexplored places and taking pictures of something new isn’t creative. Most people here just want to share the pictures that show how they perceive the world in their daily life. Some are pros, most are amateurs just trying to learn. It would be a better idea to create a separate group of photographers who just explore and give you creative photos if that is what you want, but from a mainstream group that focuses on letting everyone share their perception, I don’t think it will work here. You have no choice but to go through those cliche locations, models. I feel sorry if you don’t see the difference in perspective that everyone has. You cannot force people to be your definition of creative, but rather appreciate and learn to see in their perspectives.
So, this topic ends here, what do you say about this scenario?
