The Faux-tographer.

Where do you draw the line between photographer and photoshopper? For me, this distinction is increasingly blurring. Take the Winter 07 edition of “Better Photography” for instance – there are two articles within which discuss techniques used by professional photographers (the writers of said articles) to create their final photographs from compositing or heavily post-processing their original images.

One would have thought that this level of manipulation using Photoshop, for instance, would mean that the image can no longer be regarded a photograph.

Thoughts?
