If a picture really says more then a thousand words, here’s a 2000+ word essay about my thoughts on Photoshop…



People has been acting weird about photoshop lately, like it is cheating somehow… So I thought I’d make some before and after pics. I don’t claim to be a photoshop guru by any means but I think most people associate it with adding or removing things from a photo, like in fabricating. I see my photography out in the field just gather the data for the finished photograph. I spend so much more time on the computer developing then the time clicking the shutter button, it’s in photoshop my photo becomes a photo…

I’m tired of people telling me what I am “allowed” to do, I am the artist and the images are not an attempt to prove anything… I could add loads of UFO’s and flying Obamas in my art and it would still be alight if I say it is… this is my kingdom, m’kay?
