Ideological dogma? Ummmmm please enlighten me. What have I written is "ideological dogma"?? If you are referring to the quote, then I do not understand this either.
So a new "technique" is to shoot 1000 pictures in the hope you get a couple of ones that are decent? Is this the new technique you are referring to? So has it become better to have "happy accidents"??? Yes there has been a transition to new techniques which leads to far more sloppy photography.
Actually there is very little "new" when it comes to photography concepts. The only thing new about photography is that there are a lot of people out there with cameras who are doing a lot of shooting who really do not know photography on a conceptual level and they spend more time learning Photoshop by attending seminars, etc. in order to make their pictures look better then they do learning photography.
Actually your responding to my post instead of the one you intended to respond to is symbolic of the problem with photography today and that is a lack of "attention to detail". Not having an attention to detail when shooting a photograph? That is no problem...it can just fix it in photoshop. If I spend too long on a single image, then I will not have time to shoot 100s of more images or the same subject.
