i never understand why people insist that there is a craft to using a camera, processing + printing ... it is technique and skill.
once one understands the technique and modifies it to fit their own needs, and improvises, it becomes "art".

is it a "craft" because it is made by hand ?? sorry for my confusion ...

barry, it seems that you are getting close. once you have your technical "stuff"
running in the background and don't think about it, you will be able to "do what you want"
