I must be a really, really slow learner.

Photography > The art or practice of taking and processing photographs.

The camera processes the photograph, the user presses the shutter button ... takes probably 10 seconds to learn the basics.

How to turn on camera

Find shutter button

Press shutter button

Photo is processed.

Done.

Doesn't seem to me that those are "all the basic concepts of Photography".
