Shooting Pictures is Very Easy Recreating it as a Poetic Thought is What Matters Most, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I have seen a lot of conceited arrogant brash , high end camera proud photographers in my life..people with misplaced attitude who think camera makes pictures , or very proud because they learnt photography abroad.. or in a famous Institute ..
I learnt photography the hard way.. but I was lucky I learnt it on black and white film and slides ..
My grand daughter Marziya Shakir 4 year old learnt it as hind sight , her first lessons imbibed from her photo guru Dr Glenn Losack MD New York.
And in all humility I taught Marziya Shakir to Ulearn Photography as taught through text books .. I taught her to learn photography, by recreating it as poetry on the soul of another persons poetic consciousness.
And this picture shot of me aka Beggar poet by Marziya Shakir on the Canon EOS 7 D with the heavy vertical grip attached to the camera.
Marziyas framing and the tilt of her pictures creates magic and I am also learning much from her ..every nuance ..Marziya Shakir adds beauty to white space .. she does not whine grumble when the interface of her life changes like some adult diaper dependent folks on Google+
She got used to the heavy Canon vertical grip , she did not tell me to remove it.. so I learn the meaning of graceful acceptance from my gifted 4 year old grand daughter.
