Have you ever noticed that photographers who say that photoshop is cheating, are always rubbish at photoshop.
All digital images can be improved in photoshop or similar program even if you don't like photoshop, a levels adjustment and sharpen will always improve an image.
Most of you will have heard of flickr or other sites like picasa where you can share your images. Though these sites are not a portfolio, they still represent your work, so while you share more images on them than you would on your own web page you still need to consider the content. All images should be in focus, sharp, exposed properly and displayed correctly.
I have over 4,000 images on flickr with over 150,000 views, my hard drives have over 20,000 images on them and god alone knows how many that has been lost/deleted over the years. Thats a ratio of 1 of every 5 keepers that are good enough to share.
Welcome to my blog. My photography is on a tight budget like so many others out there, but through this blog I hope to show that great photographs can be achieved by all.
