What is the art in photography?

One of my students asked the other day what is the art on my photography.  We were discussing getting past the barrier of finding herself as a photographer and discovering what her niche might be.

Finding herself (and yourself for those reading) as a photographer means finding what interests you, what is it that you want to tell as a human being, as an observer and finding what tickles your curiosity. Finding your hungry eye.

The art in my photography is to get paid. Getting paid is a real art because making pictures is not easy, making good pictures of food and people is even less easy. If it was, it wouldn’t be a profession, right?
