About me

i suppose you could say I'm old fashioned.i 've always been against the new technological age.looking at what's possible with new digital cameras makes the old SLR image quality look hazy to say the least.
having said that looking at images taken on these new generation cameras, often they look too perfect and therefore false.i wonder what the original was like and suspect nothing like the final all the tweaking in photo shop, etc.
it's a bit like watching Dallas.perfect hair, perfect teeth, perfect skin equals er fact i'm heartily sick of toothpaste commercials.

    Hi Mike, thank you for your follow up. In general I agree with you opinion about state of the art cameras and polished digital photos. But sometimes I enjoy to play around with photo shop to look for a picture behind the original
