    Enjoyed the article, laughed more at the comments following the article. I think Mr. Greene is using a bit of hyperbole and people don't understand that. As well, he is trying to make a point about honesty and style in journalism and most commentors seem to be missing that; instead they are focusing on the $10k they laid out for camera gear and someone told them they still aren't real photographers.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Wow.
