This Reddit Group Is All About Sharing Photos That Amateurs Took, And They Show Just How Good Casual Photographers Are (108 Pics)
Photography is historically much more different from all of the other art mediums. Since it came much later than other artforms, it was democratic right from the outset: anyone with a camera and some enthusiasm could participate. But, of course, the technical knowhow, the prices of the first cameras and photos, and many other factors made professionals look really good.
However, the times change, and along with the times, so has photography. Nowadays anyone can snap a high-quality photo using only their smartphone. And these little technological and sociological changes have made it so that regular, casual amateur photographers seem on par with the professionals. Don't believe me? This Reddit group is dedicated to exactly that: splendid photos by regular people.
