Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you had a good weekend.
To kick the week off I’ve a magazine article I wanted to let you know about but also I wanted to ask your opinion on something.
Advanced Photoshop Magazine
In the latest issue of Advanced Photoshop Magazine I , along with a group of other Photographers, Retouchers and people connected with the industry, was asked to write my thoughts/feelings on article under the heading ‘Are Photo Skills Being Replaced?’
As you’d expect, it’s a topic that’s always guaranteed to generate a discussion and so it’s great to read what some of the other folks wrote too.
Now I also posted about this over on my Facebook page this past weekend saying how I generally feel about it and how I don’t believe photo skills are being replaced.
Here’s what I wrote…
So what about you? Do you think Photo Skills are being replaced?
I came into this industry through the digital door; it was starting out with Photoshop that led me to becoming a Photographer. I wasn’t one of those folks who’s Grandad gave them their first camera. I’ve only ever known digital and had the where there’s Photography there’s Photoshop mindset.
We all have our opinions and that’s great because without them things could get pretty boring but I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a sweeping statement:
“When all is said and done, we all believe that to get the very best ‘final’ image we have to begin with the best ‘start’ image that we can.”
What do you think?
As always if you have any questions or comments then please feel free to make use of the comments section below; it’s great to hear other people’s opinons on this (never ending) topic
Have a great Monday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow,
