Time for a new featured journal!
Recently I noticed there was a long time from my taking of a picture to being it deemed "finished". That's the time I take for image post-processing (using adobe elements). No longer do I take a set of pictures, chose one I like, crop it and post it.
My question is: Is it better to take more photos in order to get the picture perfect the first time? Or is it acceptable to just take photos and get them the way you want afterwards?
I think there's a point with you do so much digital processing that it isn't even considered photography anymore, but then where's that line. I'm already spending at least half an hour finalizing an images and sometimes that turns into hours.
Also, there's effects a camera makes that you can't (that gap is getting smaller and smaller, however, that statement should hold true). So taking the time to do it right will make you take more photos in order to get the look you want, but do you ultimately get a better photograph out of it?
Also: I'm working my way through the replies I'd received while I was offline- so don't be surprised if you're getting replies to messages from July, or even earlier!
