I have seen, with great amusement, the debate about photography and the selfie. Selfie isn’t proper photography! Proper photography… After 50 years of roaming this earth and many years behind the camera, 5 years in academic pursuit, through photography to the creative processes of a BA Hons in Digital Art, let me give you the definition of proper photography… “it is whatever YOU like, that YOU captured, on whatever YOU use to record an image.” Should anyone argue with you that is not the case, smile and say “I like it!”
You are now a proper photographer, go forth and share your talent!!!
The “academic selfie” using the time tested technique promoted by Robert Capa; “If your photos aren’t good enough, then you’re not close enough”
