    He co-invented the Zone system for God's sake and I've been lucky enough to see prints of his up close. They are fab. They sing. Other photographers' works also sing due to Adams techniques. His work is of the HIGHEST quality.
    Yeah, I we alittle shocked when she said it myself. Apparently, thats the only thing I remember from that class. She now teaches private classes at the camera shop that I shop at all the time now. She is a street photographer, with kind of a shock art style. At that time, Adams was my favorite artist, so it really stung me.

In that case, the photographer is the artist and they deserve the credit. In this case the photographer is most likely highly accomplished at photoshop as well. 1x.com is full of concept photographers for example.Peter Kemp being a prime example
    I'm with you all the way, JAS. I can't think of a better example of artistic vision than that of this hack.

    I had to find the movie online and watch it.

    The movie is showing on Netflix right now, if anyone is interested in watching it. I found it fascinating and really, this photographer deserves his own thread for discussion.
