While writing a comment reply the other day, I made mention of cheating sometimes using actions in Photoshop. I received a wonderful reply from someone else:
It’s all a learning process. And personally, I don’t think anything is “cheating” – whether you shoot in auto or any other mode; or use Photoshop to enhance the image in post-processing – it’s all about creating an image you love, regardless of the means.
Thank you Brenda for reminding me we are creating art. Whether we are taking the picture, editing the picture or sharing the picture.
