Bizair Posted June 1, 2013 Share Posted June 1, 2013 Is this alarming, or what!! http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/05/31/chicago-sun-times-axes-all-staff-photographers-offers-reporters-iphoneography-training Have we reached the stage where the facilitation of current technology has dumbed down the general public as to what good photography is all about? I suspect it has to some degree, just like it has in other fields, general journalism is a prime example, but in many other fields as well. I have a neighbour who is now shooting weddings. Previously she thought beautiful sunsets were her thing. She is a lovely lady and so I am using this as an illustration of what is happening in the world of photography, not as a personal criticism. Her clients think her images are wonderful - they are anyting but. Many are out of focus, awfull perspective, and simply not capturing the day as it should be. She is getting plenty of wedding work, using a 60D but alway on Auto. She even borrowed my EX580 flash to handle a recent wedding. I guess this is what many professionals are up against. The dilution off what is a professional approach to such an important occasion. Any views? Ken Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
