    "Photography", who says it best?

    I have spoken with many photographers over the years and listened to countless interviews, podcasts and instructional videos. I have noticed that many people say the word "photography" (as well as photograph and photographer) differently. Various pronunciation, enunciation, etc.

    I like the way John Sexton says it. Slowly, clearly, precisely and with a touch of reverence. Of course these terms could also be used to describe his work...

    Who do you think says it best and why?

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Any way of saying it other than "capture" works just fine.

    Why do you say that? I've heard it said many different ways and find them all interesting.

    More critically, does anyone really know how to pronounce Brassaď properly? Since I've finally bought a book of his work. Also, I still don't dare mention László Moholy-Nagy in the real world - mostly because only academics really give a shit about his work, but also because I CAN'T GOD DAMN SAY IT!
