I love a great photograph of a special moment as anyone, and thus my passion for photography and gear. Sadly in this day and age of digital, internet/media and the desire/need for shock and standout it is too convenient to manipulate our photos. You’ll find me mostly shooting JPG, very rarely RAW and only do simple touch up in post; crop, global adjust of color/contrast/levels. Most who meet me are shocked I don’t shoot RAW, nor even own a copy of photoshop. Yup, you heard right no Photoshop or other major commercial editing tools, just shoot and do quick edit. Every picture here is almost SOC and edited as noted. Some may say what a waste of the great capability, I just see it as published as captured with a few corrections for settings not gotten just right by photographer at the moment ;-)
I found these two articles very educational and worth pondering.
