I was just quickly reading though this article at Luminous Landscape"> about image making. Is this really what photography has come down to or will evolve to? Is post-processing taking over from actually making the exposure? I don't know how and why you make photographs, I simply do it to document life as it goes by, mostly making exposures around my family and our little adventure called life. To not make the final result purely an act of chance or machine, and to allow myself a bit of challenge in a hobby, I prefer to use manual cameras, thus some amount of pride goes into being able to make a "correct" exposure. I prefer prime lenses, no flash, my prints are pretty uneventful, I don't ask for a lot of dodge and burning, normally no cropping, prefer black & white etc. - one might even called it a minimal type of available light documentary photography (if I was into labels...) But what do you think? Will post-processing and Photoshopping take over photography? It seems like it is mostly/all about the end result ? the image ? and less and less about the journey of taking that photography?
