The Proof of Photography video from National Geographic was about how photographers have the ability and privilege of showing the rest of the world current events in an artistic manner. They have the ability to inform people and evoke emotion and passion through their photographs. Photographers can capture moments in history and show the full array of human emotion in these photos. Words that stuck out to me from the video include “power”, “beauty”, “love”, and “tragedy.” These words or concepts are important to us as human beings and it is amazing that photographers and other artists are able to convey these abstract concepts visually in artistic ways such as framing, angle, lighting, and color. First, in order to so, one must care about what is happening around the world, put oneself out there, and find all that is beautiful and interesting.
