A Strange Analogy…

I agree my post today may seem out of place. However, am hoping it would make every sense once you follow my thought process. How does this post title relate to photography one may ask. In my world, it has every ounce of relevance because one of the most powerful single  aspect that has shaped my understanding of photography is the training I received in my professional career. Dictionary.com defines “Analogy“ as the comparison of two things which have the same relationship. In this case: the two things in reference are Photography and the fields of Diagnostic Imaging (DI) and Nuclear Science (NS). Both require an indepth understanding of all contributing variables in order to arrive at the best quality photograph (like in photography) or radiograph/ scintigram (like in Diagnostic Imaging or Nuclear Science). Unlike photography where a bad image could be easily enhance with softwares like photoshop, post processing is unfortunately a no in my professional career. Because people’s lives depend on those radiographs/scintigrams, there is zero tolerance for a bad image; the reason why we undergo rigourous training in understanding the insight of taking high quality crispy scintigrams every single time.

As a nonbeliever of short cuts, it was a no brainer that once I got hooked into photography, I started off by enrolling into the Prince Georges Community College Photography Program. My goal was not just to be another photographer but to be one that understands the science behind the art of taking good photos. In the process of learning all the contributing variables behind photography (f-stop, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation) as well as the role and to what degree each has toward the overall quality of a photograph,  I immediately recognised the similarities. It quickly became apparent that thesame principles  of photography hold true  in the fields of DI and NS.

My quality today is partly thanks to the instructions I received from Photography School, however my understanding of the science behind taking great photos is largely because of my indepth knowlegde in my professional career and its “strange analogy” to photography.

Its funny how ‘analogies’ happen, but in this case I think I got the best of both world. Because of my unique perspective in this art, I am therefore very critical about quality check during my shoots. Except when done intentionally, I make sure my shots are void of blown out whites, loss of ambient light, shaddows and blur just to list a few. My focus on quality is also easily reflected by the quality of my equipment. I use only prime lenses as well as top grade cameras. I do not endorse anyone particular product because my phylosophy has always been that the difference between a bad and good image depends on the person behind the camera and not the equipment itself. Thats why I shoot with both Canon (5D Mark II) and Nikon D700 full frame cameras.  

I hope I was able to drive your mind into how I see this art. For me, I have rearly seen photography as a means of making a quick buck.  Rather I see it as a “Passion” first and secondly as a way to genuinely provide quality photos to people which they would get to cherish for a life time.

Thanks for reading and I leave you with a few of my past and recent photos…
