If nobody cared, would you still take pictures? I often remember this question, and my answer will always be yes. In his recent video, lovely Steve O’Nions takes you on a hike through the mountains. He is taking photos, enjoying himself, and discussing why you should take photos for yourself, and not for others. So, should you take photos even if nobody else cares? Let’s see what Steve says, and let’s discuss.
Just like fashion, photography has its own trends too. And more often than not, you’ll see people who follow trends get more feedback and recognition on social media. Does this mean you should follow trends too? Should you rely on other people’s work? According to Steve O’Nions, this is not the path to take. In this video, he discusses why you should take photos your way and stop caring about how others do it.
We may live in an era where high-resolution digital cameras are kings, but as photographer Steve O’Nions shows in this video, sometimes all it takes a simple camera to add some magic to an image.
