The Art and Science of Photography (Infographic)

Art and science are entities that, at some point, inevitably become intertwined.

Science is defined as “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”

Art, on the other hand, is “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.”

Think of it like this: after a scientific discovery or technological advancement—and its practical implementation—has become commonplace, society will begin to use the advancement for aesthetic and artistic purposes.
