Markku Nousiainen of the Aalto University Media Factory in Helsinki Finland has generated at least an implicit call for photographers to learn software programming:
"The digital camera has become increasingly a tool for programming instead of merely recording images. In the very nature of algorithms is their ability to be easily modified, a characteristic that with some do-it-yourself spirit opens up the concepts of image, camera, and picture-taking to redefinitions.
With the creative misuse and hacking of algorithms and camera hardware, it is possible to question not only our visual conventions but also the increasing manipulation of our visual environment that already takes place either with in-camera filtering, or the digital retouching taking place in image editing softwares."
