Why Photography is an Art

Photography is considered an art because it allows photographers to express themselves and their unique perspective through images.

Like other art forms, photography is seen as a mechanical process with no artistic component, creating something that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also has the ability to evoke emotion and engage the viewer. To do so, you must use your creative skills, vision, and technique. 

But as the medium evolved and technology improved, photographers were able to push boundaries and create truly compelling and emotional images. Photography has become a powerful tool for self-expression, and many photographers have used art to draw attention to important issues, both politically and socially. One of the key elements of photographer and their art is the ability to tell a story. A good photograph transports the viewer to a place and time, providing a glimpse into the life of the subject. This ability to tell a story, sets photography apart from other art forms and is one of the reasons photography is considered such a powerful art form.

Another good reason photography is considered an art is the level of skill and technical know-how required to create high-quality images. A good photo is not just pointing the camera and pressing the shutter. Capturing the perfect moment requires a deep understanding of composition, lighting, and the use of different camera angles. Photography is also a highly regarded art form as it takes a lot of practice and dedication to master.
