You’re already using computational photography, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a photographer, Dec. 30, 2021
From the article:
Computational photography is changing the craft of photography in significant ways (see my previous column, “The next age of photography is already here”). As a result, the technology is usually framed as an adversary to traditional photography. If the camera is “doing all the work,” then are we photographers just button pushers? If the camera is making so many decisions about exposure and color, and blending shots to create composite images for greater dynamic range, is there no longer any art to photography?
