From its origin, photography in opposition to drawing and painting was considered a truthful means of representing objective reality unaffected by the photographer’s perspective.
For this reason, any notion that photos should be enhanced or otherwise altered seemed to be preposterous. Little was known about the fact that most photographers used manipulation after capture to compensate for the flaws that are inherent in the process. Photoshop just made it easier.
It’s a fact: unaltered photography doesn’t equate the true reality. There are four basic reason why:
1. Image degradation occurs when representing three-dimensional reality in a two dimensional photograph.
2. A still image might capture the subject in a given moment that is the least representative from the usual perception of the subject.
3. The camera captures light and color differently from our eyes.
4. The photographer can’t help being “selective” about the truth as s/he alters the camera settings, the angle, composition etc.
Photography is subjective and affected by the abilities of the photographer and the constricting environment whether it’s uncontrollable lighting or the surroundings that don’t allow for better framing. Photoshop experts can fix all the distortions and make your images truly authentic.
