    Hi enyu,

    Just to share my view.

    My understanding of 'correction-free' photo is no correction being done at all.


    Film photographer

    1) Pre-processing - Use filter or film to "correct" the light or extreme WB.
    2) Post-processing - in darkroom

    Digital photographer

    1) Pre-processing - Adjust camera build-in setting before shots
    2) Post-processing - Use software to Pro-process in digital darkroom

    It is possible to avoid any correction (be it Pre or Post) as long as we are at the right time , right lights, right moment. But how often we can be in that right situation ?


    I belong to those pro-processing type cos I believe pro-processing is part of the digital darkroom process. Futhermore , I am not good enough as those who can have one shots one clean kill.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    Anyone are welcome to correct me if I am in the wrong path.

    Regards

    There are people who sees Post-Processing as a crime... and of cos there are people who Loves to do post-processing. And there are also people who will choose to stand in-between. It doesnt matter which category you belong to. Its up to your own choice...

    But my 2 cents will be that both "Post-Processing", and "Just Pure Photography" are kind of an ART Form of their own. They may look easy to achieve, but to be good even at just one subject isnt a childplay...

    From a customer's point of view, the final image is all that matters. You can draw pixel by pixel using Paint for all they care. From a photographer's point of view, we all try to create the perfect frame we envision straight out from the cam. PP to me is a valuable skill that adds on to the creative potential of the original image. It is only when you have a good image to work with that the final output will be something to marvel at. BTW, erik, I think you are seriously missing out on something

    Hello Erik,

    I couldnt help but note that you are against Eikin?

    (1) Having a 1DMarkII doesnt mean you can produce great pictures instantly
    (2) He has repeatedly answered that Custom Curve loading IS a form of postprocessing. It allows you to have out of camera picture because it loads a certain algorithm into ur camera aka Photoshop Actions.

    that said, loading a custom curve does not solve the question as it depends on the situation you are shooting in. There is no one CUSTOM CURVE ultimate. So, Post processing in those situation that the custom curve did not work or in fact give problems is still required. So now, is post processing required?

    am I?

    (1) who said anything about it?
    (2) uh huh.. okay?

    yes, no ultimate custom curve. user111 is happy with his results using that method and he's just suggestion or whatever you call it to the threadstarter. then came a eye rolling smiley and then a 'hey you rude'.

    I think the thread starter got the point already. There's no purpose for this thread to continue then. Thread hereby closed.

    Thread starter, if you are still having doubts, feel free to start another thread.
