My Thoughts On Post-Processing

The data in my Tips & Techniques section of galleries illustrates various techniques that, to my tastes, improve images from digital cameras (or scanners). I am not one who subscribes to the philosophy of using images straight from the camera with no post-processing, a practice some seem to pride themselves on and one that baffles me completely unless one is shooting archival photography where absolute adherence to the accuracy of a scene is of paramount importance.

I am an artist and a lazy one at that, hence my love of photography for its quick and easy artistic gratification compared to the laborious, tedious, difficult, and time-consuming fields of art like oil painting or watercolor. My photography then, as an outlet for artistic expression, has no self-imposed limits on it other than the limits of the technology itself and I'm free to do what I will with the imagery my camera captures.

This was the case for decades when I shot film and spent hours every day in the wet darkroom and I see no reason why it should be any different today in the digital world.
