Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

"Reuters, the news and photography agency, has issued an outright ban on photographs captured and submitted in RAW format.



Instead, freelance contributors must now only submit photos that were processed and stored as JPEG inside the camera.
According to Reuters, there are two reasons for this move. First, there's the matter of alacrity: RAW images need to be processed by the photographer, which takes time—and when you're reporting on a breaking story, sometimes you don't have time. The second reason is much more contentious: Reuters wants its photographs to closely reflect reality (i.e. be journalistic), and it's concerned that some RAW photos are being processed to the point where they're no longer real."

jpeg art filters - key feature on new cameras ;-)

Possible the beginning of the end of over processed images?

If only that was the.case. More news is now on video and the wider and more populist photographic world has no interest in documentation, preferring the 'impactful image' to truth or reality - even accepting that we all have a point of view that carries into our pictures.
