A Photographer or Digital Artist?

When is a photographer not a photographer anymore because they digitally manipulate their images so much? It’s kind of an interesting question, one which I’ve never really thought of before.

My Nikon FE

This is my Nikon FE. I bought this camera around the turn of the century. I don’t remember the exact year now. Maybe 1999 or 2000. That’s my best guess. Which means I’ve owned it now for 16 or 17 years.  Longer than any camera I’ve ever owned. Obviously I bought it used. It was […]
