I think the right amount of editing is like adding a cherry on top of a picture. I was chatting with my bestie Jason last night going over some photographers in the surrounding area. He is very "level" when it comes to photography which makes me jealous because Sometimes my photos aren't so leveled and his ALWAYS are. :shakes fist:
I came across this in my search:
Yes, this is a picture someone paid to have taken of them..
Don't get me wrong, I am completely infatuated with full figured woman. I AM! and this lady could've been in a position 10 times more flattering then this one and the picture would've looked a lot better.
We also talked about over processing. Jason hates it, and I'll admit I'm not a big fan either
It can be okay sometimes, but not in all of your pictures. Leveling is also something to keep in mind as awkward angel make for awkward pictures.
I think if you have a lot of insecurities and you feel the need to change things up, if that make you happy then why not? Life is all about finding out who YOU are and being happy with what you find. You definitely wont be the first girl to mess around on photoshop who gets there hair done and wears makeup lol.
Is there something you hate about photography? Something you Love? Formspring me and let me know!
