At the beginning of the new season and after enjoying summer holidays, most of us are full of energy and ready to visualise, plan and make our dreams and desires come true. Being myself at the same starting point, I’m already organising the follow-up for the Cyclades workshops (Syros, Gyaros, Delos) while preparing a brand new project. The main characteristic of the upcoming workshop will be a combination of art through entertainment, on a place that has a lot to offer on landscape and cityscape photography.
On this blog we’ll be discussing minor and major photography issues such as whether post production is necessary in all cases and mainly on more abstract themes. This actually has been the main topic of discussion and disagreement between photographers. Personally, I believe that post production is an additional tool to photography which can boost the final image to a totally new level. Various professionals and artists have appeared giving us amazing samples of their work (through post production) while there is still a big amount of people believing that digital photography is all about about computers and technology.
On all the above and many more, I’ll continue to contribute, think, concern, discuss. Working on the field of photography that I love, I’ll keep on learning and trying new techniques on a very solid basis though, the actual image taken before post production. There is no software (at least till now) that can make you see a beautiful frame, a special shape, form, colour or texture. There is no software able to make you either creative or productive. Working, reading, experimenting are some of the main concerns when trying to create something different or new on either digital or analog photography.
This is actually the point where I’d really appreciate your opinion.
Photography with or without post production?
