I agree the camera, not you created a picture, You may have pointed it in some direction but the camera created a bitmap or jpg. you just pressed a button. Again there may be a creative process in selecting the subject, perspective or even editing the image created by the camera. But you created nothing. The camera created a jpeg, the printer created a print, they created something. You pointed the camera and pressed a button.

I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this issue

Best wishes Richard


I guess we will have to disagree. Although you might make a good argument that you "created" the image Lies Inc. photographing the invisible man. But you might argue you cannot photograph something that is invisible
