Ian Neilson Nature Photographer
Photography is both an art and a science. Photography allows us to express our feelings, emotions and our creativity, but to do so we need to master the scientific part of the medium. Unlike a creative painter artist, who is in direct contact with the subject and the canvas, a photographer is separated from the subject by the camera and from the "canvas" by computers, software and printers in the modern digital darkroom.
