Lunacy




Post processing is not something evil to be avoided, and there is no extra photographer-cred to be found in never using Photoshop*. That being said, this, straight out of the camera, resized and nothing else.

*Actually I never use Photoshop because I am cheap, and have the GIMP. Yay open source!

Technically, anything done after making the photograph in the camera is 'post-production'. In days before Photoshop or the variants, this involved wet darkroom work, processing the film, then prints. Which may or may not involve any other detail attention. Thus, even your cropping this image, and then printing it, is technically Post-Production.

Or, maybe, post-production isn't until prints/internet uploads are done, and it's when you show the photograph off.

Did I say I cropped it? The framing is in camera. :D

The way I regard digital post is that, if I am skilled enough, I can either have my idea of what is right, or Canon's software engineers' best guess at what the average user of their product might be trying to achieve. The Canon engineers are usually pretty good, but personally, I'll usually go with my idea.
