Reality and Digital Pictures

Charles Maurer:

In this article I shall explain what digital technology can do that conventional photography cannot—how computers can produce more naturalistic pictures, not how they can produce special effects. To do this I’m going to start with perception, pass through art, and enter computers by the back door. Although this is an unusual route, it approximates the way I think when taking a photograph and it provides the only way I know for negotiating the maze of manipulations offered by photo editors.
