Photography wih No Manipulation

As for Photography, I believe in NO Manipulation!

It's the Photographer, and then his Camera and the World, the combination of which may produce a work of art!

The availability of an Opportunity for that combination to work wonder depends both on Chance and the Photographer's Eye.

All the photo-manipulating tools and things like that are not for the Photographer to take advantage of but what the traditional photographer used to do, such as cropping and minor adjustments which do not disturb (which otherwise is known as "improvement") the originality of the photo taken spontaneously.

A photographer's Basic Tool is Camera. If in order to produce a work of art, he is dependent on such manipulations, he is not a Photographer, but a Graphic Designer, entirely a different branch of Art where he belongs to try his talent.

I use my camera with this 'Philosophy of Photography' in mind, and seldom go even for cropping.
