Camera Clicks – Article by Peter Delaney

As you can tell, I really enjoy Phorography. I am very new at this. My favorite photographer of all time is Ansel Adams. I have bought a few instructional books tied to his work, but I just haven’t gotten to really read them yet. I spend time reading articles and watching videos on all things related to photography. Here is a link to an article i just read and found very Interresting:

I really dont spend any time editing as i read about alot of people doing this. Right now, i am a total purest. Why spend so much time looking and taking a picture that moves you then spend hours or even days editing? I just don’t get it, anyone want to help me out on this one?

I think about Ansel Adams taking pictures with real film, not a digital instant gratification set up, but the art of developing film was the real talent. By using a digital camera, my thoughts are, you should spend time following that voice that says “Omg thats a great picture or oh that touches my soul” then go home and see what you’ve got, not spend hours tweaking the picture.

What I’ve learned so far is, it is really hard to click that button to really capture what your heart sees. But i keep clicking…how about you?

  1. If you don’t have a good shot, no editing in the world will make a difference. I some editing as I have a vision in my brain of what I want the shot to look like, usually black and white or some kind of colour desaturation – I like to bring out the starkness of a scene. I definitely don’t think you take a shot with the idea that the only way it will ever look good is through editing – it probably won’t.

  2. The only “editing” I do to any of my photos is cropping and resizing… the latter of which is necessary if you’re going to put them online due to storage restraints. I prefer to take what the camera gives me…
