You May Be A Photographer, But Are You An Artist?

Puppy Between Feet - Roger Ballen

I think that photography is the technical while art is the creative. How we look at create photography is what makes us an artist or technician. There's nothing wrong with being either as both have their place but I think if you can identify your way of being with photography it will help you greatly on your path to creating work that speaks of your true self.

In this wonderful video by COOPH we're asked some questions that can help you see if you're creating on the path of art or photography.
