I think it’s funny to watch professional photographers squirm to avoid ever using the phrase “take a picture” – as if describing what they do in such a deplorably plebeian way would immediately and completely discredit the artistic merit of their work.
“I made this photograph”
“I took this image”
“I produced this photo”
“I made this image”
“I engineered this photograph”
Come on, just say it. “I took a picture.” Sayyyy iiiit.
