the next leap in photography
« on: May 17, 2019, 02:28:18 pm »

not just auto focus and auto exposure, but auto composition

As you are doing your model shoot, imagine a smiley face indicator in your viewfinder that lights up when the image is 'right'. And the camera even triggers the exposure. Your job as a photographer now becomes a game to get as many smiley faces as possible to light up in your viewfinder. You concentrate entirely on your subject, moving around, engaging the model , in a kind of dance.

Or maybe just pointing the camera in as many weird ways as possible to get the most  'highly rated images' that will lead you to 'success'.

At this point, machines will have usurped our conciousness. Our judgement has been discarded and we will allow metrics to dictate our choices without ANY flavoring by our own human process as an artist.

Maybe film will make a comeback if only to prove that human cognition has  a value.
