Basharat Shah, Chicago, IL USA Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Photography is an art of identifying the beauty within an object and making your audience perceive it through your lens. With some basic aptitude, this art can only be learned by experimentation and practice. Extravagant courses and tutorials are not essentials in this business, nor should you use the lack of pricy equipment as an excuse for not being able to shoot quality photos. Remember, the best pictures in the world have been shot with simple cameras. All that matters is what is behind the lens.
