Am I a photographer?

 

I feel kinda plagiarist whenever someone calls me a photographer or appreciates my photography skills.

   On the other hand, whenever someone calls me an artist or appreciates my art, I feel proud and happy, because I literally created that shit with my own hands! So it makes me feel like I’m entitled to that appreciation.

But it’s different with photography. It’s like I didn’t do anything. There is all kind of beauty around us and I just happen to notice it. Let’s say, I’m at the right place at the right time and I seize the moment. I, in no way, made those flowers and sunsets beautiful. They already were and are!

I only know how to use an equipment to capture pictures and several other software to bring that beauty out to the world.

So, I don’t know, this is that what being a photographer is like?

If you think that I am just another nerdy, introverted, girl next door who likes reading and painting and has opinions about every damn thing, then you are absolutely right! That's exactly what I am.
