All the digital photographers we know of are listed in our Index, with direct link on their Diccan's item. On summer 2014, we list some 300 artists, to which could be added the works of multimedia artists, for which photography is frequently and important facet.

In the 21th th century, analogue photography ("argentic") becomes more a vintage tradition that a current form of art. Nearly everybody uses digital cameras, from the cheap models in cell phones to the high level reflex systems.

Computational photography is "an emerging discipline that enables the creation of enhanced-quality photographs through novel combinations of digital images, algorithms, optics and sensors" (Richard Szeliski, in Communications of the ACM, Nov. 2012), introducing a 9 pages paper on the subject, by several authors.

Photo cameras never cease to progress. The Lytro cameras, for instance, go to full reality dephtth recording, allowing powerful post-processing.

High dynamic range photography (see our HDR note (in French) opens new ways, with some artistic efforts.

Photography becomes a properly digital when algorithms are used for transformations (morphing, filtering, compositing). Then it may converge with painting. Jean-Paul Margnac brings lights on digital art in photography. He quotes Flickr as the major site presenting works.
