When some people ask me how I produce my pictures I know they mean the technical details of aperture, lens, lightroom methods etc. with an implicit acceptance that the purely mechanical aspects of photography are important, when the fact is they are really not. Photography is about image and, especially with digital photography, image is entirely dependant upon the artistic style of the photographer. Two photographers shooting the same scene and developing the pictures on the same software will arrive at two very different realities. Whatever the processing method, the extraction of information from the camera and the way it is presented is art. The processing is as bigger a part of the final image as taking the shot and photoshop is one of the more common software that enables the process is photoshop. I am not into using photoshop to make my photos look like they were taken by CCTV; this may be art but it is impersonal, seeking to use photoshop to take the personal out of the picture. I like putting the personal into a photograph and I strongly believe that this is what makes a photograph work.
