    Photoshop; Darkroom Style.

    People often question the place post production has in photography and I often here about the art of the darkroom. Here is a video about Ansel Adams and his darkroom techniques and proof the art of photography is more than just pointing a camera and getting an exposure. Post production isn't cheating, it is very much part of the art and often where an image can come alive. I particularly like his dodge and burn tools

    Photography is the art of telling stories with light.

    I've said this before...
    Personally I think Ansel would have loved digital camera's and Photoshop because of the increased creative capabilities.

    The Zone System has often been thought to apply only to certain materials, such as black-and-white sheet film and black-and-white photographic prints. Adams (1981, xii) suggested that when new materials become available, the Zone System is adapted rather than discarded. He anticipated the digital age, stating
    I believe the electronic image will be the next major advance. Such systems will have their own inherent and inescapable structural characteristics, and the artist and functional practitioner will again strive to comprehend and control them.

    There is no such thing as cheating as long as you get the end result you wanted.

    I've always thought that too. A man who made all those little planning steps for his printing and the dodging, burning etc would have positively revelled in Photoshop.
