Thoughts: Great responsibility

with one comment

“With great power comes great responsibility. Don’t go too far!”

…was what I came across when reading Popular Photography’s article on retouching images.

I can’t help but agree, especially when it comes to portraits. Everyone wants to look good, but no one wants their picture to look photoshopped. Most people still want to look themselves and I truly believe that that should be the case simply cos everyone has something beautiful in them.

It’s a photographer’s responsibility to capture the beauty in people, not photoshop’s.

  1. I agree, though I do get a lot more requests to make the porcelain skin. I always tell them, a lil texture is more believable and they look fine. Maybe I should use the word gorgeous.
