Winter time is a great time to go through old images and take a hard look at them. As photographer, new and old we are always learning. The day that we think we have master our trade and there is nothing more to learn is the day we get left behind. I will always stand behind the principle of fix it before you click it. However while we are learning the technical side of photography, we must be ever pushing forward the boundaries of creativity, though the use of camera and lighting first,( natural lighting), then photo manipulating through Photoshop or other software out there. I thank the lord that I was working with Photoshop before it even had layers to work with and it use to crash at least three times an hour. Thank goodness it only crashes once an hour now..lol.
