Is technology freeing more serious photographers from the mundane? Are the shackles to documentation being removed?
The lower-end of perfunctory documenting of happenings can now largely be done by anyone with a phone leaving more serious photographers room to move from simply “taking” photos to “making” making images, giving amateurs and professionals alike the opportunity to enhance experiences and create additional value. I’m not talking about photo manipulation in the edit, but rather increased freedom in our selection of content, equipment, techniques and output throughout the entire process. What do you think?
