There’s a big cloud casting an even bigger shadow over photographers and the use of retouching software on their images.
It makes perfect sense for professionals to master retouching skills. After all, they need to satisfy a client and charge a fee for corporate, blemish free images. What about normal hobby photographers?
Should all photographers have photo retouching skills too?
Should non-professional photographers actually need to enhance and fix their photographs or is that cheating?
Maybe they should have captured a better photo with their camera in the first place?
Are you a photographer who dumps what could be great photos if they’re not quite perfect straight out of camera?
I guess if it’s an incredible landscape you could always return to the scene, hope for perfect conditions and try again.
But… What if that special moment in time can’t be repeated?
Maybe you snapped a special photo on your travels but later discover it’s got an annoying blemish preventing you from showing it of and hanging it on your wall at home.
What if harsh lighting has spoilt that perfect family photo? You want to share this life memory with family and friends but it’s ruined!
Unfortunately you just can’t restage these moments. So, do you frustratingly throw these photos away?
