Is photography becoming a lot more computational and technological? I thought about this recently while waiting to depart at the Thames Water Bus. I overheard a conversation between two photographer friends discussing the resolution on their cameras and how everything can be fixed in Photoshop.
These days, photographers prefer to talk about megapixels, filters, layers and apps instead of experiences and how photographs are made. They prefer to tell you how long they spend editing a photograph and how many layers each photo has.
Photography blogs talk about the gear and gadgets that you should be investing in, not about the time you should invest in perfecting your craft.
Photographers are forgetting how to take a picture; they forget that the camera is just a tool, the eye and the mind of a photographer are what makes a picture.
I still believe if a picture is not great from the moment you take it, it’s not going to get any better by adding layers in Photoshop.
