New technologies and formats, such as colour photography, digital manipulation, and large-scale printing techniques, have defined the medium over the last few decades. These developments are frequently used by contemporary photographers to present new perspectives on traditional subjects and compositions. A photograph, like a painting, has the power to move, engage, and inspire viewers. It could be a black-and-white Ansel Adams landscape of a snow-capped mountain reflected in a lake, with sharpness and tonal range that highlight the subject's natural beauty. It could also be Edward Weston's close-up photograph of a bell pepper, which has a sensual abstraction that both surprises and intrigues. Or a 1950 photograph by Robert Doisneau of a man and woman kissing near Paris City Hall, which has come to symbolise romance, postwar Paris, and spontaneous displays of affection. Nobody would deny that photographs like these are works of art. Art historians can explain the technical and artistic decisions that elevate the masters' photographs, such as Weston's use of a tiny aperture, Adams' printing techniques, or Doisneau's distinct aesthetic. It is obvious that the ability to create an original and interesting painting is as distinct as the ability to compose and take an interesting meaningful photograph. People can admire the photographer's capture of a moment in time, the stillness of the image, a fragment of history given space to breathe in all its accuracy. The photographer creates the photograph, which leaves an indelible mark and captures emotion, light perspective, and so on. With the camera, it could be a lens, a computer, or a printer, but the bottom line is that you did not create the physical object. Photography is not without composition, lighting, colour, balance, and so on, and thus requires skill. However, because photography has not yet celebrated its 200th birthday, there has been much debate about its artistic merit.
