So help me I've never thought along those lines in my photographic life. I 
might just automatically change the aperture or shutter to add to the light 
effect, but that would be done without any definitive analysis nor thinking 
about why ... I'd just do it. Absolute truth. And as far as thinking ahead 
to printing? ..... Never enters my mind simply because the important thought 
or re-action at the moment is to what's in the viewfinder, what I'm seeing 
and does it make my gut twitch to shoot.
