When we make a photograph we are responsible for the photograph the we create.
The outcome of the photograph is a result of our ability to respond (response-ability) to what we see (light) during our process of creating the photograph.
When we see something to photograph we respond by taking out our camera and continue with our process as photographers.
How we use our camera in terms of camera operation is part of our ability to respond to the impulse of making a picture.
Depending our understanding of photography and camera operation we may be more able to respond or less able to respond.
The more we understand about photography and camera operation the more we have to bring to our our response-ability in terms of creating a photograph.
