    When you take a photo with a Digital camera, and then do loads of post processing in Photoshop?

    For example, I took a blurry, not well lit photo. I imported it into photoshop, then applied gradient maps, color filters, and sharpening. now it looks glorious to me.

    Of course it is! I'd even say even more so! The only thing is that it may be less a 'photography' feat, but more a digital manipulation...

    A good book to buy is the "Photographer's Legal Guide".

    Any time you are creating art, no matter what the tools, it is your work. Now, whether photography purists will like it is another matter, but it's still yours! :) Actually I've been doing more processing on my photos lately as I've been learning Photoshop, and the amount of creativity you can use with the program is staggering.



    Me too!

    Before digital manipulation there was darkroom manipulation, things have not changed as much as you might think.

    Yeah, definitely! I've actually been working on darkroom special effects lately (really make me appreciate film photography! There are sooo many variables! And ways to irreparably screw things up...)
