In another circumstance, an artistic photographer in his studio formally takes a posed picture of person. He places the person in a particular attitude or position so as to photograph that person in the most flattering way. The artistic photographer takes a picture with his digital camera and looks at the result on the display. If he is not satisfied, he adjusts the camera and adjusts the pose of the subject as well. He takes a second picture. The artistic photographer repeats this process until a satisfactory picture is produced. Now the iterative improvement algorithm involves not just the digital equipment but also the subject. Another picture of the subject is taken with each iteration. The freelance photographer has one picture with which to work; the artistic photographer has as many pictures as he wishes, all to his own choosing. Needless to say, the artistic photographer obtains a final picture of much better quality than does the freelance photographer.
