Surely I can’t be the only soul who gets the impression that the predominance of this “It’s all Photoshop” whinging is coming from other photographers? Maybe it’s time to stop whinging about Photoshop and time to start learning how to use it.
Like a lot of photographers, I’m drawn to capturing those “take-it-all-in,” ultra-wide cityscape shots… And I suspect I’m not the only photographer who has also spent WAY TOO MUCH MONEY on equipment and hence can’t afford a tilt-shift lens to keep the straight lines straight in my architectural shots. Here’s why I no longer need one.
After reviewing some of my older photography, I’ve come to the conclusion that when it comes to shadow detail, less is often more when you want to retain or emphasise mood and atmosphere.
