    'photography' and' taking pictires'

    Can anybody tell me 'photography' from 'taking pictures' please?

    How can I explain the differences between the two terms to my students?

    For me, both are just about taking photos of some objects and developing.


    P.S.: I might be lazy or stupid. I googled first but fail to find satisfactory definitions. ㅠㅠ

    Very crudely, photography is an art, a profession, a hobby, etc.

    Taking pictures is what I do with my disposable camera when I go on holiday.

    People who are into "photography" worry about light levels, which lens to use and what f-stop is appropriate to best capture the subject.

    People who take pictures just push a button and have no idea what an "f-stop" is..
