I got together with some of the local photographers for a Christmas luncheon. It was nice to hob knob with other people that think the way that I do. One thing I think we all agree on, selling someone a CD with an entire session of (un)edited images on it is doing no one a favor. Line up 5 photographers (with professional cameras) and you get 5 similar images. But turn us loose in Photoshop, and each one of us will have an individual style manifest itself on our image. 50 files on a CD doesn't show the uniqueness and personality of the artist that created them. But give me a half hour or so, and you'll have an original portrait that I'd be proud to sign.
Here's a finished file...
and here's how it came out of the camera. It's a great photo, lighting is good, composition is balanced, but I'm sorry, It's not finished! I look at a file out of the camera as a raw ingredient, ready to create something tasty!
