The reason for making photographs depends on the one doing the making. Does one want to make photographs? Or, does one need to make photos?

I believe that people want to make photographs to remember an event or a person, etc. The person that needs to make photographs falls somewhere on Mazlow's hierarchy, albiet bent to the world of mage capturing...

Where you're at on the hierarchy dictates why you make photographs...and impacts the result...

Bartender, one more, please...
