Absolutely.

Since photography was invented, I daresay there is less demand for oil
portraits of wealthy families.

Since *digital* photography came along, skilled experts in developing
and printing have more competition. These days anyone can take a photo
and publish it online in seconds - but this doesn't guarantee the
quality of the work.

*Good* art and *good* photography still takes immense skill, no matter
how good Photoshop becomes. Perhaps the gap between amateur and
professional is narrowing, but I don't think it will ever close.

This applies to art, photography, music, font design, and no doubt
countless other things that have been affected by electronic technology
over the last century.
