Interestingly, that precept is still alive and well. Except now people say “I don’t use photoshop” — “I don’t use filters” — “ I only shoot raw” — etc., etc., ad nauseum.
It’s all ego and opinion. Back then, and still now. Life is short. Pity we can’t just celebrate that people explore creative endeavors instead of looking down our noses at people who don’t do them “our” way.
Loved the photos along the way — thanks!
