I think I have noticed a trend...
It seems that
"realism" is out the door with yesterdays newspaper...
(sorry to all suffering periodicals!)
What I mean by realism is;
recording factual information.....
I know, I know.....
I am so "yesterday"...
out of touch....
I can't help that,
but what I have spent most of my career in photography
attempting to do, is no longer popular, apparently.....
Have you noticed all the photo-trickery?
out of focus,
serious color saturation?
All of it, done on the computer in
Photoshop, Aperture, or the like....
Interesting, but is it anything like reality?
I use iPhoto and Aperture,
I have used Photoshop Elements on previous computers.
I like all and both..
It makes producing a quality image for my customers so much more
Also, I love to be able to switch easily from color to B/W.
I am seriously grateful to have the power to eliminate the stray dog, person, car, or
"you name it" from the background of "on-location" shoots.
I like the messiness of film shooting...
it was more intensive, but at the same time,
when I recorded what I saw as the perfect image.....
I knew, I had earned it.
What do you think?
