Does Being a Photographer Suck?

I recently read a blog entry on 10 Reasons Why Being a Photographer Sucks.

I would have to agree with most of the points. But I also feel that if you want to be a photographer, most of these 10 reasons can be overcome.

One of the reasons is Post Production Sucks. But in a way this is where the creativity is achieved. If you think it sucks then you probably didn’t get the shot. Yes you could spend hours cleaning up minor details, but that also may be going to far. I am still in the very beginning stages of learning to do things in Post Production, but so far I have discovered that in general the biggest problem is picking the shots to work with and that those only need some minor corrections. AT least that’s my opinion, whether others think that is another one.

Being a photographer is as much as anything a passion. And either you enjoy it or you don’t. If you don’t it’s probably not the profession you should choose. As the old saying goes, if you enjoy your job, you will never feel as if you worked a day in your life.
