I guess you've heard the words location, location, location! Yes, that you should listen. Location, light and the object you are shooting with your camera. How you choose your angle and how you approach the object? How you represent your vision? These are all very important things in making a great photo. You have to make a lot of decisions when you photograph and if you just stay relaxed it will help you to make even better photograph.
One thing I have to tell you is, how I've heard so too many times the word photoshop by now. Why not make a gret photo straight away. Not everything have to be fixed by our friend photoshop. How about to make that kind of photo shoot that you don't have to make any awesomeness with your magical PS. Just few ordinary things.
Why we make our world with PS...photoshop? Aren`t our world enough beautiful without artifical touch. Think about it. All those commercial pics of perfect people, dogs, cats...who wants to live in world they present? I'm not even going to content matter - that's a another story...
I have to say longer I take photographs, less I want to photoshop. I think renaissance of old-fashioned films and natural touch is trending and I truly hope so. But in digital form. All kind of filters used in digital images are very handy for us. Same time we go back - these filters - they imitate a lot different kind of films and materials like polaroid. No more neutral tones. Hooray!
What comes around goes around. I'm ready to renaissance. Totally. Are you?
