I was last Sunday at a photo expo in Pasadena California and saw a marketing presentation by a guy of NIK software, which can be find on the http://bongobytes.com
What that guy could do with that program is amazing and my question is: Is photo software close to take over the photography? Has the photographer to become also more an artist. Just take pictures and alter, modify, merge and all other options that are available to him/her. Or to make it short is the software artist taken it over from the photographer within the coming 5 years?
