    Sounds like he's having a bit of a lark, but otherwise, he must be very old to have such an antiquated view of art. Photography as an art form is made, not taken and certainly not snapped.

    What a pretentious statement! Tell him to forget about semantics and just keep buying lots of film.

    Both film and digital are subject to picture taking and picture making. It starts when you put your eye in the VF. Framing, shadow detail, acutance, high lights, DOF, shutter speed etc.

    John is old, and is the retired former head of photography for the city I live in, and is the best darkroom worker I know, his remark was meant to be an ironic shot at Photoshop I think, and the way that effects can be produced that don't appear in nature .

    You said it best.

    In other words, I think we "take" and "capture" light, then we make it in PhotoShop or the wet darkroom.

    I really don't see why some get hung up on semantics, and take offense to "take" and "capture"...
