“To learn how to take pictures, it is enough to learn the technique and press the buttons on the camera correctly”

Shooting technique and parameters are only part of the necessary skills. And by the way, the part is the easiest. How to set the exposure? How to control focus? What is white balance? – all these technical issues are solved easily and simply, and with regular training they are fixed and remain with the photographer forever. This is the arithmetic of photography, two plus two. But photography is first and foremost art. But the creative component is much more complicated and not so unambiguous. How to compose a frame? What to show in the photo? What subject should be photographed? Photographers constantly suffer from these and many other creative questions and solve them with varying degrees of success. Of course, it is worth starting photography training from the basics, from technology. But it’s too early to end there.
