I'm willing to bet my answer fits with most others, but TL;DR. I think its almost like a learning curve. In the beginning, when someone first starts getting into photography, it's all about technique. Ooh let me try keeping the shutter open to blur it! That's fun! But the subject is something so plain as a ball rolling on the floor in their garage. Only after that, when technique and style have been improved, can emotional weight become the main focus. At that point, the photographer should not have to focus on how technically skilled the photo is because it should be second nature to him/her. But in the long run, both are equally important. Even the most emotionally potent photo will look bad with amateur technique.
