The Debate Over Digital Photography – Part II

In Part I of The Debate over Digital Photography I asked the question, “Is digital photography true photography?” I believe I made my case strong, that yes, it is. But there is another matter to be dealt with yet on this subject, and that is dark rooms versus photo-editing software.

I have taken many different photographs, ranging from wildlife to portraits; from fine art to journalistic. As a photographer, I have ultimate control of what this photograph will become. I choose what to focus on, such as the angle and zoom of the shot. Plus I might just take over a dozen different shots of the same object. Each shot will have…
