I do feel many who venture into Photography has lose the old art of teaching.
For example, the relationship between shutter/exposure, DOF, composition etc. With technology today and image editing, many of the great looking picture we see today are not created by nature but edited.
Many dull looking or even uninteresting pictures can be enhanced and edited to look like PRO. To me, these are not the art of photography but art of image editing. Sad for people what wanted to learn Photography.
