Photography is a powerful element in society today.  The article I chose explains how years went by before National Geographic stepped up and started using the camera to become a powerful tool. “A great photograph can explode the totality of our world”. That is a quote from this article. I personally interpreted this meaning to if a picture is so strong and powerful then it could destroy the entire being of something. Every person, place or thing is an object for an amazing photography.
    Soren Kierkegaard, a Danish philosopher, once said “everyone will be able to have their portrait taken, formerly it was only the prominent and at the same time everything is being done to make us all look exactly the same, so we shall only need one portrait”. In the past 125 years, Kierkegaard was proved both wrong and right in different ways. Photography is a very diverse concept and it can cause a lot of controversy. The opportunity to get a great photo is a tough thing to do, but if someone tries hard enough then they can really do it.
    As an aspiring photographer myself I can definitely say that the perfect is hard to get, sometimes you will never get it. It takes a lot of time and patience to be a photographer, but if you try your best then the outcomes will be great. If you think about it, everyone is already a photographer. With all the the new and latest technology most people have access to. Also, some people prefer to use the classic film cameras which is more unique.
