A common hang-up with photographers is the notion that they must invariably and without fail make their pictures. By this, they mean that they should never shoot something just as it is but should themselves make as many ‘contributions’ to it as possible. Only then, they say, have they the right to call their pictures their own. They do not, of course, realize that this is a neurotic point of view and that its hidden implications would show them in a very bad light.
