I would like to try and lead a discussion based on the topic of photography as an art. I have thought about this topic a lot, and have many questions to ask you all. I thought it may flow better if I began with one at a time. Art = the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. 1.) Do you believe that a good photographer is also a good artist? Consequently, do you believe that a good photograph is automatically a piece of art? (Good photographer = one who can produce properly exposed photos regardless of anything else) (Good photograph = one that is properly exposed regardless of any other feature) 2.) Do you pursue photography so that you can take good pictures? Or do you pursue photography as a means of expressing yourself artistically?
