Lensbaby Manifesto Photographs

As a painter uses oils and brushes, photographers, too, have a set of tools that help us to bring our vision to life. Is the process one of removal -- do we take from our surroundings? Or do we start with a blank slate and fill it with our imagination? Theres more to capturing a photo than simply pressing the shutter. What does this process mean to you? Do you gain more from the act or the outcome?
