Beating Retouching-Top Photographer David L. Anthony analyzes the process behind a story shot ''the old way''.

 ”Its Not Magic,its just Love and Knowledge!”

~Lady Sybilia~

I have always been a firm believer that Photoshop and generally all retouching tools were,ehm,just tools. What was discouraging to see is that most aspiring photographers were paying far more attention to the aftershoot pc process,correcting details that range from lighting effects to creating special effects.Over the years i feel i see more ”retouchers” than actual photographers and i have met really talented persons that were ”lazy” to study/work deep on non digital photography techniques and work on natural lighting/angles, thus relying to digital retouch just ”too much”. 430 more words
