I wonder, what's the third dimension in this "photography triangle"?

plain old "technique".

I put myself in that third, as I most enjoy discussing which lenses I used on what camera, the settings and techniques used to get the shot, and learning from others' techniques. We talk less about the finished photo as an artform and more about the gear and technique involved. We certainly don't care about how the technology of the gear works (the science behind it), but we do care about how to use the tools.

The musician scene has a similar triangle: the engineer, the artist and the producer.

So the triangle here is Science, Art & Technique.
