For all the minor differences, there are more major similarities and identical things.
Physics is physics, and making technical choices with a creative motivation is well, making technical choices with a creative motivation. (Composition, exposure, depth of field, filters, etc).
Your tool differs the most when it comes to finishing the image.
Your 'analogy fail' is far greater, and less relevant. See above.
