Well of course, the other side of that coin is, "Why do it in PP when it can be done with a lensbaby?" (I wasn't being snarky either, I swear.) I think it just comes down to what a person would rather put effort into. I personally would rather spend more time behind a viewfinder to get my result from the camera instead of sitting in front of a computer. But others enjoy that work with the software and prefer to just get a raw image and then play with it at the computer. To each their own, no?
Yeah..but........it isn't an image until it has been processed from a Raw file. A Raw file is merely a series of 1's and 0's until there is some means of a state change taking place...so, where does one draw the line? You can't get it "right out of the camera" unless you are shooting a .jpg and then, ...
