Photos, or Faking it?

Personally, I know a lot of photographers. It is something that I have always wanted to do, ever since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I never pursued that career path...who knows why. I'm sure that if you asked me, I would come up with a list of lame excuses. All I know is that I do regret it. And I don't regret much!

I try to capture amazing images with my every-day camera whenever possible. But as you well know, they are nowhere near the same! However, recently I found a pretty cool app on my iPhone that allows you to capture, and chronicle, your life through photographs taken simply on your phone! It has cool effects that you can apply to the pictures, and needless to say, I am addicted! I find the most simple of things beautiful, and snap a shot on my phone whenever I can. Here a few examples:

 Now for all you photographers out there, I ask you this--is this faking it? Not that it matters, because I think it's pretty cool! But my inquiring mind would like to know!

    These photos are beautiful. Fake would be using someone else's photos and claiming them as your own.

    I'm no photographer, but having spent the last five and a half years training to enter a creative field I feel I have a right to say that your ability to capture a small moment through the lens of even the most rudimentary tool is legitimate and wonderful.

    BTW, it is never too late to pursue something you love. Especially if it rids you of the tiniest bit of regret. :D

  2. It depends what you consider faking it. You really just have to have an "eye" for capturing images and almost anything can be considered art. I like the photo of the lamp!
    Just do what you love, no matter what it is. I bet you have more space for painting too huh!? :)

  3. Pretty photos, what app is that? I am like the loser of apps when it comes to my iphone.

    I have a fancy camera and I don't know how to use it, and I hate to edit. I'm a fake.

  4. I'm with Alissa. Photography is a art, and art is whatever you find interesting and fun! :-) So... keep doin what you're doing!
