It’s the Vision not the Process (2 images)

Seems like these days I’m having more and more discussion about what “photography” is.  To me, photography is having a vision and making it come to life through our cameras.  “But when does photography end and art start?  Is there a difference?”  In my opinion, as long as photographers use a camera to take the initial picture, it doesn’t really matter what happens to it after that because it’s all art to me.  I don’t care if the photo has been processed in multiple filters or none at all.   I try to appreciate the vision and not the process.

Now, if you’re talking about entering photos in competitions, I do agree that there should be categories because it’s really difficult to compare a straight out of the camera photo with a photo that has been heavily processed.  They are different techniques.  It would be much like pitting Monet against M.C. Escher.  It’s apples and oranges.

What do you think?

So with that said, I leave you two iPhone photos that I edited in iPhone apps.  If you care to check out more of my iPhone photography, please click on the Instagram link on the sidebar.  Thank you and have a great beginning of the week!

Sometimes I search for older photos that I haven’t yet processed….you know, those ones you want to delete but you don’t because just maybe there is something you can do with them.   Hope you’re all having a good Friday!
