Ok, so it?s been a while since I?ve posted. Been busy. Life
shit you know?
Anyway, I?ve been exploring the limitations & boundaries
of my camera, an advanced amateur DSLR. Lately, I?ve posted on flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/redmann)
some pics I?m quite proud of, as I?ve used the cameras capability to make them.
I haven?t post processed much other than basic cropping & balance. I?ve
been able to take macros with a zoom lens, with quite a nice depth of field,
and make a shot look like an oil painting, just with camera settings &
focus etc. You know what?
NO ONE IS LOOKING AT THEM!!!!!!!!
Well, not anyone, some people are, but not nearly as many as
look at my other stuff. Go figure. Real photography sucks, post-processing
The pics people look at are the pretty glam shot, post
processed to the max. Screw actually taking a real photograph with a camera.
All you need is a point & shoot & Photoshop.
I AM depressed! What a sorry state of affairs. Real
photography takes a back seat to digital manipulation. Oh well?I guess I should
roll with the changes & just post process the shit out of everything!
