    Editorial versus Fine Art versus Snapshot

    Janet you sound like a person who is functional as well as artistic about retouching. Workflow is everyone's private art and technique is their expression. Have you ever considered a gig as a hi-end beauty/fashion retoucher in NYC?

    Editorial versus Fine Art versus Snapshot

    Frank, your comments are spot on.

    I often visit with a person who is mostly a photojournalist. Retouching to him means basically sharpening and some cropping, with realism being the key point.

    I'm all for removing the distractions and making art out of the picture.

    Needless to say, our friendly discussions cover all the bases, each of us learning from the other.

    I'm with you, everything is manipulated in some way, whether in camera or not. It just depends on the reason for taking the picture in the first place.

    Thanks for commenting.
