Introduction To Photography – What, How, and Why.
There’s what we do, how we do and why we do.
As photographers, what we do is create photographs, how we do is based on the camera we use and our understanding of camera operation and photography, why we do is our individual intent in the creation of the photograph.
The why drives the what and how.
The why is our motivation for making the picture.
The why is our the intent of the outcome of our composition.
What we do with our camera how we do with our camera should, as much as possible considering the limitations of the camera we’re working with and our understanding of camera operation and photography, support the why we make the photograph.
