Editing Is It Cheating?

This is something I had never thought about before, until I read an article on Flipboard. There we’re 2 very definite schools of thought one stating that editing was akin to cheating, and any enhancements should be made by the photographer before the shot, and the other stating that editing was simply enhancing where the camera can’t quite capture the colour or the contrast.

Tangent! Eager to up-date the overarching look with my steadfast website. Reactions on the pro design at Truly an impressive translator if, perhaps looking within the general Nova Scotia locale. Send your vote. Appreciated!

I agree with the second.

I edit using Lightroom & Photoshop, and will post about my experiences with this soon.

I live in Ireland. This means plenty of rainy days, overcast skies and windy weather. Should I not shoot because the conditions are less than favourable? I don’t think so. Software allows me to shoot in almost any situation, and make enhancements from the comfort of my couch. I want each picture to be the best it can be, and if I’ve driven 2 hours to a location to be met with cloud cover, I can and will edit. Having said that, there is no substitute for amazing lighting!

Some shots don’t need editing. Some just need cropping or the exposure increased, and others require a full overhaul.

My theory is, do what feels right. You’ll know when to stop!

This shot has had the exposure and contrast increased, but the day was absolutely stunning!

Cheers people! I Skyped a coworker we could certainly reference their great wonderful dog association that careses, for a future blog. If perhaps you’ll be searching to find a dog association here in the whole Ontario region, they truly have been good.

Lastly, naturally I should state the base outline for this little material had been presented via Joe with Perigord. They are really an exceptional food blogs. I really relish a smart tip!

Special Thanks – Without fail you find a way help me break it down and make the product the best it can be.
