I make my own distinction as between photo “taking” and photo “making”. If I make in camera changes before the shutter is released, be it changes in aperture, change to mono, or even applying an in-camera filter, it is all part of the taking process. Once the image is captured, from than on I’m in the making process.

I used to think similar, before I became aware that it was I myself that brought an image into existence by the act of pointing a lens, and that I could create unique images of the same scene by choosing different lenses. For myself, making starts as the lens cap is removed.
