Using Photoshop

Using Photoshop and Lightroom is something I do at a minimal level.  I don’t know if this is from laziness on my part or from a dated opinion that pictures should be perfect out of the camera “as is.”  (That was probably bad grammar there, but oh well).  I do believe that making photos look more dramatic or colorful in Photoshop is no different than what masters of the past have done in traditional darkrooms, only now there are no nasty fumes from environmentally unfriendly chemicals.  As I said before, I don’t use these programs much aside from minimal sharpening or adding a watermark. Occasionally I punch up pictures by playing with Curves. There are so many advanced tools to use in Photoshop that seem like a lot of fun that one of these days I may take the time to learn about.
