Not sure if this has been asked before.
Reading thru the excellent stuff in this forum, I've been thinking if using DSLR to take pictures and subsequent photoshop the pics in computer to create the desired effect is a must. ie. both come hand in hand. I mean, shouldn't taking pictures be there and then and not post processing? If you didn't get it right, you didn't. Why post process?
I know this question is a bit anal but I feel that with the advancement in technology, no need to use good camera or lens, worry about framing and composition etc etc. Just snap and photoshop it. Everyone can be a great "photographer". Just need to be IT proficient.
In the old film SLR world, every shot is precious. Are pics in those days lousier? Maybe more natural.
I'm not against tech advancement but just a thought. Do you agree??
