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 ?

The 'reality' recorded by a camera when photons hit the sensor is not the 'reality' recorded by our brain when photons hit our eyes. We don't process the information in the same way.

So which 'reality' are you talking about?
