Which is most important in a photograph; composition/aesthetics, technical skill, or the subject/content of the photograph?
For me, it honestly depends. Regarding composition/aesthetics, I would say it is important because you would ideally want to have a photo that shows off beauty, style, and imagery. One example of this could be a photo that instantly attracts a viewer because it is flamboyant or all over the place. On technical skill, I feel that this quality is geared more towards aficionados and collectors as they really value fine perfection above many other things. But still, technical skill is a must anytime, anywhere and I would be lying if I didn’t say that photos must look picture perfect for presentation purposes.
Lastly, subject/content I feel is always important because it is what sets apart one photo from another rather than each being the same thing. Ultimately, I think all 3 aspects are super important because with each coexisting, the end result would be art in a true photographic definition.
