how technical is photography

The thing I realise is about technical people is that they love their digital SLR cameras. The question I have is how much of it is art and how much is technical.

Sure, there is the technical aspects of photography, balancing the iso, aperture and shutter speed. Picking the right lens for the job. For tech guys, it seems like, what's the fastest shutter speed, what's the lowest aperture,

Maybe art comes in the form of "what is the job?". It's not about taking a photo of an object, landscape or person. I think there always need to be some story which makes the photo successful.

If someone can answer the question on why is Singapore so hard to shoot, my answer is that's it hard to capture a perfect city. It's way too boring and hardly flawed. Not to mention the excessive cloud cover that makes everything even more boring.

Well, I haven't been blogging here, but I've started a new photo blog as well just to remain creative.
