In readiness for Creative Week (July 9th to July 13th) and more specifically the Digital Imaging day on July 13, there will be a Twitter Chat to discuss topics around photography and imaging on July 5th at 6:30PM to 7:30PM.
Photographers often consider aperture, exposure and light settings an art form to be cherished over auto-settings and quick fixes, with all the work done in post-production. But in an age when everything is becoming digitalised, should the photography community be ready to embrace image manipulation? Some of the areas we’ll be touching on to stoke the debate are;
- Do you agree with photographers who are of the opinion that you shouldn’t do anything to your shots in Photoshop that you couldn’t do in a darkroom?
- When does a photograph stop being a photograph, and become a piece of illustration or artwork?
- When it comes to retouching, how much is too much?
It’ll also be the last chance for you to get your hands on tickets to next week’s Creative Week. Include #CreativeWeekUK in all your tweets during the live Twitter Chat this Thursday and you’ll be entered into a competition to win one of two tickets
