Regarding manipulation, it is important to understand that it is impossible not to manipulate a photograph. The lens manipulates, the sensor or medium manipulates, the camera manipulates. the developer (chemical or computer-based) manipulates, the printer (machine or human) manipulates, the paper (or screen) manipulates, and even the light used for viewing manipulates. Beyond that, even the human eye and brain extensively manipulate the image we "see". So, Mark, you're not a cheat by my rules either.
Fascinating.

Great read. Thanks for posting, Scott.

Blah,blah. Too much navel-gazing.

Photgraphy is art. If even one person stops for even a second to look at your photo, and thinks "That's interesting", you have succeeded. If no one does, you have failed.

The only exception is completely rigid, documentary photography, like a crime-scene or accident investigation for instance. But then, that isn't art, just the dry cataloguing of information.

All this hand-wringing about "cheating" is just so much "angels on heads of pins" B.S.

So shoot your photos. If you suck, someone will tell you, if you are lucky. If you aren't lucky, people will just ignore you.

My dad knows Mark Schacter from High School.
We had lunch with him the other day, as a matter of fact, he critiqued some of my stuff that's up on here as well...small world.

I have said for a while that people over think photography. Sometimes they over think it in setting up for a shot, sometimes it's after the shot has been taken and they;re trying to process it. This guy evidently over thinks it by typing a lot. My eyes glazed over about two sentences in. Glancing over the rest of it, it seems he cares way too much what other people think. I choose to shoot for myself. I naturally hope folks like my work, but if they don't, that;s their loss, in my mind.

I got the impression that he was the type of person that "likes to hear himself talk" (or write)

Right, and that has nothing to do with "over-thinking" photography. It probably doesn't matter what subject he was to write about, he'd probably say just as much, as it seems that's the type of personality he is. Nothing wrong with that.

That said, I enjoyed the read as I found it quite entertaining. I'd gladly read more of his over-thinking.

I put it on mostly for a non Railfan point of view on working a shot. For what it's worth, Nothing for us as on this site we fallow their rules.
