Post Processing

 

Baby Black Bear in Tree     Digital photography has two major sides when it comes to creating your images. The first is taking the picture. That is generally the part that people enjoy the most. And then there is post processing. People generally shy away from editing and organizing their images because it seems like it will take forever, and  it doesn't seem that important. But it is important to realize that editing is very important. One it acts as quality control. You can see which images are blurry or out of focus. That not only lets you know what you have to focus on next time you go out shooting, but then you can also delete the bad images. The really good images deserve to be edited so that they can really shine. Editing makes images look more professional, more refined, and it looks like more care was put into it that just snapping away at random. It is like the difference between the care Ansel Adams put into dodging and burning each of his prints to get his vision on paper, and just snapping careless photos because it's fun. Editing is also very creative. If you want, you can add effects to your images like selective color or high contrast. It allows you to change an image in any way you want. I suggest that you look into editing, it really makes a big difference, and it opens up a new world.
