Ansel Adams may have spent more time manipulating his images in the darkroom than any other well known photographer of his time. He took negatives and merged them, he played with light... Yet there seems to be this heated debate between, "Photographic purists", "traditional photographers", "modern photographers", graphic designers, and everyone in between about the definition of photography. Where is that line between a photo, and a man made graphic?
I personally like what Trey Ratcliff of Stuck in Customs has to say about the topic in the following video. But, I'm really curious to hear what you have to say. My sister and I firmly disagree on where the line is drawn between photography and graphic design. What's your opinion? Does it matter? Do you care one way or the other? Do you wish you knew more about the topic? Share.
