Surely what's important is not what you or KW or TM say is important. It is what the individual enjoys doing, as a participant in photography as an activity for humans.

Some people can't resist looking down a long, lecturing nose and announce it has to be composition, light, blah blah blah, but they need to suck their words back in and take a step back.

People are allowed to participate in the activity of photography for whatever aspect they get a kick out of.

  • It might be composition, light, blah blah blah
  • It might be how cameras work
  • It might be the fancy cameras, or classic cameras, or collectible cameras
  • It might be the different types of image making methods
  • It might be technical understanding and advancement
  • It might be blogging and sharing and teaching
  • It might be nothing more than membership of a community
  • It might be as collectors of photographs
  • and more, I'm sure

There is room for everyone in this hobby, and for all their relative priorities.


It's ironic that those blaming the demise of photography on GAS are the same people who blame the demise of photography on the rise of smartphones. People should make up their minds.
