I think manipulation is a genre of photography in itself. No reason to shun it, just depends on whether it is appropriate. Not like you’d be manipulating when doing street photography, and you wouldn’t be going willy nilly with a studio portrait.
I get what you mean and you have brought in another point to the kinda discussion. What I took from the original post was that it is all about how you see the world and how you go about capturing it. The ability to make something interesting or beautiful without altering or manipulating your subject. To me, it’s all in the way you look at and perceive life.
So, I’m home from Melbourne and it was incredible. I tried to go to most of the places that people had suggested but unfortunately there was just not enough time to do everything. As you can tell from the title, a massive amount of photos were taken and I’m still going through them all, but i think I have taken a decent amount of good quality shots.
I have just queued about 15 which I will start uploading later on tonight.
I’m also going to be 21 on Monday. Get excited because I’m not..
Photography isnt about having a pretty girl stand the way you want her to while you press a button. Photography is about observing something different, something special and capturing it as it is, not how you manipulate it to be...
Hope you enjoyed Melbourne, its a dope place
No problem, Jessica! :D I really enjoy your work and thank you for following because it is because of that that I could find you :D
Besides, everytime I get a new follower the first thing I do is go to their first page, if it's appealing to me then I go to their archive and I go to their very first post and look all over so that this person knows I didn't click the "follow" button just because. It's like giving respect to the work of this new found artist :D
Hope you enjoy my page as I'm going to enjoy yours, keep it up!
Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to do that, it’s awesome! I look forward to seeing your posts in the future :)
