Holistic Photography: Photo-graphy literally means writing with light; your canvas is the darkness. The first step is opening your eyes to the light around you; revelling it, seeking to understand its properties and how it interacts with the world. Then, you start learning how to manipulate it, add and subtract it to better express your vision in your photographs. And finally, you develop an understanding of how your camera reacts to light; fundamental to becoming a great photographer.
