Consider at least tweak your curves in a basic editing program, similar to controlling contrast w/ an enlarger using film.Hi All,
I recently started photography and got a DSLR.
I have been following a lot of channel on YouTube and forums like this about photography and realized that taking photo is just the tip of Iceberg, and you HAVE TO KNOW EDITING to make it presentable.
I have no grudge with editing and infact amazed how talented people are out there who know PS and Lightroom that well but then is there any forum/platform where the actual raw(not the format) and unaltered pics are appreciated or considered.
Or is it just me who wasn't aware that before even getting a camera, I should have learned PS.
When I shot B&W 35mm film I edited in the darkroom to make pleasing prints, and choosing paper type was as important.
Ansel Adams incorporated extensive darkroom work to print what he visualized using the zone system.
But, a raw unadulterated documentary style is to be appreciated as well. Especially common with the art community when shooting w/ a pin-hole camera or plastic Holga Russian camera.
