We all love to create images, and as serious photographers, it is our passion. We strive to create with skill and precision, and ultimately produce photographs that viewers consider “good,” or, better yet, “great!”
Photography is a bit of a blend between art and science. You should have a grasp on how your camera works, and how to manipulate your equipment in order to achieve the desired outcome. That’s the science part. The art is up to your vision as an individual, and this is where things can get muddy.
So, what constitutes what is good, great, average, or poor? Photography is subjective, let’s be honest. One person can really like an image for their own personal reasons, while another can see the same image and find it uninspiring and not all that good. There are many arguments and differing trains of thought that can apply when attempting to answer a question such as what makes a photograph ‘good?’
