Video versus picture

Video versus picture
Some time ago, I have started thinking about the differences between the photography itself and the videography. Of course, the differences are quite obvious. We see video footage synchronised with a music background, and in the other hand we have instant image. The advantage of recorded movement with sound is unquetsionable. As a previously director, camera operator, it is easy to compare those two professions, while I become a photographer. The question is, why ? Of course, the main reason is the need of the market. But, going deeper, analysing the secret of the photography, I have found some surprising conclusions. Movie, it is a ready product, prepared to eat it, digestive it and spit it out. Do you like watching same movie every certain period of time ? Maybe some times. What about pictures? Pictures, the secret of them is put in our imagination. The sourrounding world isnt based only on those things we see or hear. There are lots more dimensions based on taste, touch, smell etheric feelings. Those, are served by photography. Especially if that photography remind us certain events from our lives. That is the power of photography. Unspeakable facts from our memory, raised to live by just a simple image. Easy to storage, easy to share. Close to ours hearts and minds.
