Hubby has joined a local photography club. There have been 2 presentations in as many weeks about Photoshop. He wants to learn how to take photographs and improve his photo-taking skills, not how to take OK photos that can then be tweaked. Reading the various photography forums etc online there is a lot of discussion about how to improve/enhance photographs using different means once that button has been pressed. So, I'm wondering, is this the norm - do people not just take good(ish) photographs that they dont feel the need to enhance or is it expected nowadays. Also, if a photograph is being entered into a competition how can it be judged fairly if it is a straight from the camera image against others that have been tweaked? By the way I dont have an opinion either way- we are new to this therefore new to the concept - just curious.
