Since it has been almost 7 months ago since I shared some "info" about my way of editing photographs, I thought it might be a good time to do it again for all the photography/editing lovers out here on Steemit.
For those who are new to my blog, I see photography in a different way than others do. I truly believe in photography as art, but I think the postproduction of an image has a much more significant influence in the artistic content of the final product. But don't get me wrong, there are many genres in photography that don't necessarily require this post-processing. They are a piece of art in themselves. I've specifically chosen this genre of beauty because I love the contradiction of it.
People always try to become these supermodels on the covers of magazines because they always look "perfect". The fact is, as most of us already know, that they only look perfect because they are made perfect. This perfection, that is created through postproduction, is for me the correct description of Photoshop as art.
I've been practicing for years to master these "editing skills". It all started at the age of 7. I was fascinated about the possibility of manipulating photographs through Photoshop. By following many tutorials and studying the work of other remarkable photographers, I finally got to where I am on this day.
My work isn't and will never be perfect, because I believe there isn't such thing as real perfection. But you can get close to it through Photoshop. I also believe that by finding your own recognizable technique (in all art forms), you'll be able to create a true masterpiece of art.
