One of our most admired presidents was known for his honesty. And honesty in photography is an ongoing discussion especially in light of PhotoShop. With one action, you can overlay a sunrise behind a DC monument- turning a bland image into one that commands attention. But is it honest? Does it still qualify as photography OR has it morphed to to “visual art.” Most times shooters agree that whatever you could do in the old darkroom(burn, dodge, crop, tint, etc.) can be done, “in all honesty” in digitally created images. Adding a tree…or taking one out…moves you towards “visual art.” Do YOU agree??
