The more you know (about great photography) the less pictures you take?

Don't agree at all...

Photography is a lot like music. The more you know about it the less of it you enjoy.

I believe the complete opposite about both. What a dreary, jaded outlook.

It is not an outlook, it is a fact of life.

You say this thing about music as if it's some sort of given... but it isn't. For me, as far as music goes, I may have enjoyed say.... the Ramones. I related to how visceral they are, how much fun... the energy. I still relate to that, but I've gotten into jazz (and lots of other kinds of) music which would have appealed to me before. In the case of jazz, knowing something about how the music was put together helped me to appreciate it. In this way, I've come to appreciate MORE music over the years, not less. I still like a lot of the stuff that I heard first, without knowing much about it's origin while at the same time I've continually come to appreciate new music though learning lots about it.

So much of the time, broad generalization like this one here that you've proffered don't really hold up...
