Definitely a good start. Ok, now find three people that look as though they could do with some cheering up and dance the robot in front of them! Bonus points if you get them to join in.

[Oh God, why did she ask? She is the worst dancer. This is going to be worse than the time she was asked to do a Mighty Max impression.

But off she goes.]

I'll be back.

You'll do.

[ ... So, hi. Here's Sherlock Holmes, towering over poor Max with a very serious expression indeed. Because this is a ridiculous dare and he might as well get the damned thing underway. ]

Photography is a dying art: discuss.

Uh... hello?

[Max is a little intimidated by this man. She can't quite put her finger on it, but he has an air about him that suddenly doesn't make her feel quite talkative.

At least until he asks her to discuss photography. And of course she disagree.]

I disagree. If anything, photography is more popular than ever.

With the evolution of modern technologies, everyone has access to cameras. To good enough cameras that allow people to take quality pictures without the need of professional tools.

Of course a phone camera can't beat the quality of a good, professional cameras, but the definition nowadays is constantly increasing.

Other than that, is now way easier for people to share their work, thanks to internet applications designed specifically for photography. And no, I'm not talking about instagram, even though I can appreciate its instant way to reach large audiences.

Lastly, people are finding more and more creative way to express themself through photography. Even a simple selfie can be more than just a way to make oneself look good on facebook.

[And no, she's not talking about herself.]

[ It wasn't really Sherlock's intention to intimidate Max. ... Although with hindsight, a tall, mysterious man hovering eerily over a young adult probably isn't the best image.

But it's fine, because he has a very dashing British accent and he's sort of attractive if you squint and tilt your head?

Apparently his opening topic put Max at ease enough to allow her to speak out, which is definitely a starting point.

He's just trying to gauge a reaction here, trying to find what she considers important, what she's passionate about. Photography is obviously one of her passions, but that was a given judging by the vintage camera draped around her neck. ]

Ah, but with the oversaturation of media it loses its individuality and becomes an everyday object instead. The fact that phones now have cameras in them as a standard is thereby allowing the uneducated masses the ability to take as many photographs as they see fit, which could damage the overall aesthetic of photography as a whole. Just because everyone has access to them doesn't mean that they should have access to them: you can't seriously think that every single picture taken is art?

There were always avenues for people to share their work, they just needed to be passionate about them in order to make it happen. They had to physically find people that would be interested in their craft, they had to physically hunt down venues and an audience. They used their love of photography to push their art further.

These days all little Timmy has to do to gain an Internet following is upload a series of pictures featuring a gerbil in a hat. Meanwhile, all of the artists actually trying to get themselves recognised for their artistic integrity are forced to take a backseat, because the world has deemed placing cucumbers next to unsuspecting cats that much more important.

[Max is used to talking to random sometimes sketchy people, so she recovers quickly. Plus, Sherlock asked her to talk about her greatest passion, so he loses his intimidating aura quickly in her eyes.

Oh and yes, that voice.]

No, I don't think that every picture taken ever is art, but I also don't think that an easier access to photography ruins its value as an art. Mediocre artists were always around, but only true art stood the test of time.

Photography, and art in general, should be accessible to everyone, not just a few people. Not everyone has the means to physically achieve an audience, and achieving recognition physically wouldn't make art more valuable, it would only make it more frustrating for the artist. Art shouldn't have limits... Noawadays with just a few clicks you can check the picture of somebody from the other side of the world and appreciate it... I think that's wonderful.

While many people may gain undeserved popularity and success, it's still better than the alternative. It's not like that doesn't happen anyway.
