Photography and the photographic image
Pages 17

Open up any photography guide and you will quickly find a popular reading of what constitutes photography, perception, seeing with a good eye, and all that is said to surround the construction of a good photo-image. For example, one of the companies which produce an easy to use and relatively low cost camera for the general population, advise their readers:

Good photographs come from developing an eye for the picture ... Success requires no more than the ability to make the essential creative leap from what you see to what will work as a photographic image ... The secret of doing this is to train the eye to see images that will give pleasure when they are taken out of the complex confused and constantly shifting world and made into photographs isolated by their frames.
