We all know what wonders of images we can capture with the (especially modern) technology of the camera. When it comes to art, however, there is nothing “quick” about it. Equipment needed for taking the picture and then printing it; well planned and executed set-up; waiting for, or arranging, just the right lighting, gesture, or expression, can take hours of the photographer’s time, money, and imagination. It’s not unheard of, but it’s rare, to take an artistic photo by chance. Whether it’s a film or digital camera, or a handy cell phone, art photography is a process, and can result in amazing images.
