hello peoples and fello photographers =)
newbie in the house!
anyways, here's my dilemma... i'm not all powerpacked with SLR, so what i got is a fuji finepix 3800, it's a semi manual camera (6x optical, 3.2mp)
so naturally, there's almost 0 competetion against a nikon d100 in technical term. i can't even change my lense!! okk,
the next thing is that i can't afford diffusers, reflectors and fancy studio umbrellas ^^, and so for diffusers, i use torchlights with paper or colored plastics, styrofoams for reflectors, and umbrellas? nah don't know how to use em yet!
so here's the real problem, i have a picture in mind, i get down to the field to snap away, and my pictures have the right subject, but just ain't powerful enough. and next solution is a digital retouch in my computer!
my thoughts are : as long as the final product is as desired.
however!! i do put it clearly, i enjoy and do maximize my capability with the camera settings. the rest and the fine detailing are done with computer.
i don't know how you do it, but i like how it looks!
have you re touch it? it's not bad, but it's retouched.
how about everybody else? do you think they're worth to be appreciated?
(ps: ppl who develop their own photos in the darkroom, do dodge and burn, push and pull the process... that's editing too right? haha!)
