The article discusses the coexistence of chemical and digital processes in photography. It states that it is necessary to understand how the merging or replacing of camera technologies with the computer creates changes not only in image-making methods but also in the processes of learning. It mentions that although a hybrid approach to the teaching of photography with digital imagery is a solution that might work for many, it is important to realize that such integration also brings up conceptual issues related to learning that should be addressed in the classroom. According to the article, one area where digital technology has made a big impact on the teaching of photography is in the form of photo manipulation.
