High fidelity (often shortened to hi-fi or HiFi) is a term used by listeners, audiophiles and home audio enthusiasts to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound.

HiFi in Photography: so this would mean in photography that the picture closely resembles reality.

But nowadays almost all pictures are;

- corrected / distorted / altered... and this is far away from reality.

and so, today it is better to master PhotoShop than know how to make good pictures with good knowledge of Photo tehnology.

What do you think ?

In HiFi the art is done by those who create the music and the goal is to reproduce this glorious moment.

In photography the art is within the picture, the story it tells, the feeling it creates, not necessarily within the scenery itself that was photographed.

My conclusion is, both topics only share the snakeoil and fact that people buy gear way over their heads, not the nature of the art itself.
