I've never sat down to learn the technicial aspects of photography. Obviously, that's a huge part of the craft, but I personally see the greatest "skill" in capturing the right moment, in the right place, at the right time. Anyone can take an image of the moon, some know how to do it better than others, and still others go the extra mile to get the rarest image possible. To me it's all about capturing what few would have seen otherwise. because of this, I've yet to give photography an honest "shot," but I dabble, as you can see in my portfolio.
