How to take a good picture

When I was 14 I wrote this: "truth, emotion, technique, beauty. A good photograph has 2 of these. A great photograph 3. A photograph you never forget has all 4."

A bit pompous perhaps, but it still basically works for me.

I agree wholeheartedly with 14-year-old Raul.

I also stand just a bit ashamed that at 14 I maybe spent more time thinking Molly Ringwald was pretty than examining the nature of art.

Thanks for continuing to do so.
