Inherent Tradeoffs

Neo Tokyo
You’re taking a picture of a city skyline at night.  If you want brighter lights and sharper colors you can leave the exposure on longer.  If you want it to be less blurry you can leave the exposure on shorter.  You can’t do both.  Buying a better camera or being a better photographer can make the tradeoff less dire, but the tradeoff will still be there, because it’s not a matter of photography, but of physics.  So don’t despair when you come face to face with one of these inherent tradeoffs–instead take it as an indication that you are finally approaching the heart of the matter.
