It is kind of sad how everyone these days is a "Photographer". It's so easy for someone to buy a DSLR and buy photoshop, offer crappy work and steal the jobs from those of us who have put out effort. I'm all for Photography being taken out of schools.
I was watching a great documentary on Sunday, can't remember if it was Sky Arts... about Annie Leibovitz. I thought it was fascinating.
Actually the sad part is nobody is educated enough in Arts to identify good pictures from bad ones. That's exactly why instagram filter galore pictures are so popular.
Everyone just look at the colors and say "wow that's a great picture".
Same goes for musicians and painters.
Oh like the ones that have been here in the UK, a blank frame in museums? and years back people buying a recording that lasted over 3 minutes of nothing. Or any rubbish like people sitting in a tree and calling themselves artists and it's all over the news. Or a floor full of beads.
