Obviously a good photographer is thinking about composition and the like. But most people's portraits are not of models in parks. When you can control lighting you should, but that's not always an option. Controlling the settings on you camera is always an option.

Yes. We can't always control the lighting.

Sometimes we have to use a particular aperture. Sometimes we have to use a particular shutter speed.

The fact that we can't always control something, doesn't mean we should treat that something as a constant.

Sometimes we have a prime lens and can't control focal length.  However that doesn't mean we should never consider the option of zooming.
