the photographer is dead, long live the photographer

[column width=”50%” padding=”25″]I have been intrigued to see some of the developments in digital photography recently.

Not just snapping randomly, following the action, composing the shot using the rule of thirds and using some ‘intelligence’. What ever next![/column]
