I overheard a conversation recently between 2 docs at the hospital where I'm a student. One was telling the other how, with the advent of digital, the focus of photography has changed completely. Composition is no longer important, because you can fix it with photoshop. Learning to use photoshop is much more important than pre- exposure techniques. <br> 2 days later, my friend saw a waterfall photo I had scanned from a velvia slide, taken with my canon ae-1. He didnt like the bluish cast from the evening light and the film's tone (which I intended), so he told me I should have adjusted the "white balance on my camera" (which was made in 1979). <br> Do people view photography as largely graphic design now? It depresses me that many people, even ones who view themselves as photographers, don't care about lighting, focus, depth of field, shutter speed, because they're going to fix all of these post- exposure. I'm not really interested in snapping a frame and then spending 6 hours screwing around with blurring filters and rgb correction. I'd rather sit by the waterfall for hours and figure out what weather, time of day, focal length, and shutter speed I want to use.
