Photography is art and science. Few other visual mediums require as much attention to both these seemingly disparate sets of skills and knowledge requirements.

More than a few photographers are drawn to the science side of things. We see this in the many technical discussions on forums. (I wonder how much time painters spend discussing the technical merits of one brush over another?) I suppose it's the tech stuff that draws many people to photography, i.e., those who have technical and science related day-jobs. For those folks, it's a great creative outlet that also revolves around technical and scientific understanding. Unfortunately, science alone does not make great photos. To be fair, neither does art.

Jimmy, as one who was trained first as a musician, and who finds much wisdom in Zen and the Art of Archery, I feel one is dependent on the other.

First comes mastery of craft, then comes art.

While I'm not a trained musician, I do agree with mcherry. I guess that's why in photo classes we spent so much time going over shutter speeds, f/stops, development of film (for me, photoshop at the same time) focusing, depth of field, and many of the basics. Those things along with others were gone over and over again for mastery of the basics, or fundamentals. One thing I've noticed with digital is that a lot more people are getting into photography because there's an inherent nature in many people to be attracted to gadgets, and other electronics. But there are those of us who truely care about mastering the craft, then we work on the art, in that order.
