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.

(by Wikipedia)

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

Not sure about that.  A 2D media will never resemble 3D reality.  Whereas hifi audio can indeed reproduce a stereophonic audio experience.

But nowadays almost all pictures are;

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

The definition of a good photo is not necessarily how closely it resembles "reality".  What about award-winning and notable black and white photos? Photography is a form of communication, just like any other studio art form.

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 ?
