Try to find the real values in photography

There are thousands of new technologies and devices born every day. The world is changing faster from decade to decade. Sometimes you need to stop and look on the things that are valuable and still there. When you look at photography you will notice that a good photo is still a good photo. And the rules and the creativity that decide about a well made photo are still the same despite off all the technology behind. It does not matter how many pixels the resulting image has or how less the ISO noise is. A good photo is still a good photo without a doubt. Don´t think that a certain device will automatically lead to better photos. This will result in a never ending game without any further development of your photographic skills.

Don´t get me wrong. If you plan to buy a new camera then do it. There is nothing wrong with it. Technical innovations can help you to get better or faster results. Just think of the impossible spherical panoramas when it comes to the darkroom days. But don´t expect too much ending up in an endless circle of new buying things to compensate the lack of photography skills.

Is there a major difference compared to an old photo from the film-days?
So free your mind from the fast pace of innovations and try to focus on the valuable things that last for a long time. What is the essence and the magic of these things? What does it take to make a photo shine?
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." (Ferris B.)
