In photographers I think most people lean towards one of three types. Which one are you?
This photographer is about truth. They want to take a picture exactly how the eye sees it. Reportage photographers come into this category. No propaganda, no sense of what it is like. They take the image as it is.
This photographer thinks about the image in advance. How can I get the best out of that scene. These are the people who get up early and go to bed late to get the shot. They want the light to be at it's best and thus take sunsets and sunrises. They sit, waiting for the light to change. They put themselves in the right place at the right time.
This photographer wants to get a sense or a feeling of the scene. If the scene isn't how they want, they will add filters for drama or spend time in post production.
Photography is said to be art. But THE EYE photographers will never change a sky in post as a painter might do. THE HEAD would wait for a better sky. THE HEART would have a stock sky in readiness. If there is something unwanted in a scene, THE EYE would still take the shot, THE HEAD would work around it or change angle. THE HEART would erase it in post.
Just some thoughts......
