What is the purpose of photography for YOU the photographer? Why do you love photography? What role does photography play in your life? Who do you imagine viewing your photos when you are taking them? Is it important for many people to view them (ala the web or public gallery) or only personal family and friends? What part of the process do you enjoy the most? The least? This is primarily aimed at non-professionals but certainly applies to anyone who spends time taking pictures for personal enjoyment. If you would be so kind as to share those reasons I think we can all learn a lot more about each other, I would love to hear individual responses from many different photographers perspectives.
