I am so grateful that this category of free study was initiated this time.
There are so many times I've wondered: "What would happen if..."
This is the place for such imaginings at DPC.

That is why art & competition do not exist at the same time in the same person.

"My image is sharper than yours" is a valid brag, while "my image is more artistic than yours" is not so easy to defend.

That's only an issue if you're concerned with feeling superior to having bragging rights over someone. Some (I) might say that "art" and "competition" are mutually exclusive in their underlying rationales ...

Well, you know I thought I'd resurrect this thread & start sending Flying Pigs to the Best in Show & 3 HM for the monthly FS Expert. Hopefully, it will encourage some additional commenting.

I think the camera is fetishizable because in the beginning it was a mentally & physically demanding process just to get any kind of a picture.

About 10-15 years ago (before the iPhone camera) if I wanted a photography magazine I would find it in the bookstore in the Men's section. Photography was still thought to be an unladylike occupation & the camera was thought to be beyond the mental powers of women. Not to get sidetracked, but I know people now to whom the camera is an impenetrable & uninteresting mystery.

When the smartphone camera burst upon the scene, things changed forever in ways we do not yet know. The machinery you create your art with ought to be irrelevant, but it isn't. It doesn't have to dominate & control the art, though.

The second article had this paragraph, which is what I think a lot of us (at least those with strong "traditional" attachments) are struggling with

"What I'm into is visual connection to what I'm taking, not pin-sharp clarity. It's absurd for people to think all photos need to be high-resolution – what matters, artistically, is not how many pixels it has, but if the image works. People fetishise the technology in photography more than any other medium. You don't get anybody but paintbrush nerds fixating on what brush the Chapman brothers use. The machinery you create your art on is irrelevant."

Me too.

But I started out looking for "photographic in nature" & all I got was photographs of nature. So I just looked around. I need some food for thought not fueled by the same ol' arguments.

From the first article:

" It won’t be long before photographers are making images of what they know, rather than only what they see. Mark Levoy, formerly of Stanford and now of Google puts it this way, “Except in photojournalism, there will be no such thing as a ‘straight photograph’; everything will be an amalgam, an interpretation, an enhancement or a variation – either by the photographer as auteur or by the camera itself.

People did this, do this, with film. To me this seemed to be an article written by someone who has no idea what photography is, much less used film, set foot in a darkroom or knows much at all about it's vast technical or creative history. I had to force myself to finish reading it.
