I'm probably going to bring up something that will horrify some and traumatize others. I know this site is a happy place and shock is not really part of it's personality but here it goes. I don't edit my photos. (wince) I can hear your screams of anguish! Bah, it's not that bad y'all. I like a real, unedited natural look. It's honest. Yes, that means I have to take a zillion shots to have one come out right. I'll toy with them a little from time to time to make a nifty shirt or mug or something that way... (example of such toying)
But that's about it! I change nothing in the shot, as a personal rule. I will admit I've been known to add a little sky once in a while when it's not blue enough but that's about it. Ok, so that's not nothing. It's almost nothing. I didn't do anything to this one other than make a T-Shirt out of it.
I know what you're thinking, you have a point. But I just can't. Maybe no one else will know but I will. I have all the right excuses to edit too. I can't afford a fancy camera, I'm out of work so it's not like I don't have the time. I even have a couple of nifty editing programs. I just... Can't.
I probably go to far and I'm probably cheating myself out of cash. I don't care. What of those who over edit? When it a photo finished? Why is there always "one more little spot" that needs work? Why can't we just be happy with our surroundings the way they are? Think about it.
Anyone else have this affliction? I rather like it! :) That's all I've got for now. Have a good day.
