The Delicate Dance

Photographers have always in some way manipulated images, but the question is to what degree. Dodge, burn in, some form of correction. The question is to what level and where does it cross the line especially in photojournalism. Ben Long has great and thoughtful blog post on that topic and is worth the read. The post "All Photographs Are Manipulated" is on the Creative Pro site.

Quote DuJour

Empty your mind,
be formless, shapeless
like water.
Now you put water in a cup
it becomes the cup,
you put water in a bottle
it becomes the bottle,
you put water in a teapot
it becomes a teapot.
Now water can flow
or it can crash,
be water my friend.

-Bruce Lee
