Photography consists of the ancient Greek words “photos” meaning “light” and “graphein” meaning “draw/graph”. So essentially, photography is the practice of drawing with light. So if we’re too dependent on photo-editing programs (such as Photoshop) to create a good photograph, then do we still deserve to be called photographers? Here are some statements as food for thought for those who feel they are photographers.


– Relying on Photoshop is not a crime; it will only hinder the development of your insights in photography.


– A good photograph as a result of Photoshop will not make you proud of carrying a camera.


– You are a true photographer if you still think that photography is difficult.


– Consider Photoshop nonexistent when you are in a photo session. This will ensure a speedy pace in mastering the art of photography.


– Because you are goood photographer, convince yourself that digital imaging is only needed for file management instead of fixing broken photographs.


– When you rely your photography results on Photoshop, you’ve insulted your capabilities as a photographer.


– Other people appreciate photographers because they consider photography hard work. Don’t destroy other photographers’ market by relying more on photoshopping rather than photographing.


– It’s rare for photographers to realize straight away that they’ve produced a lot of digital trash. Usually, it takes looking at them after one or two years.

    As a true photographer what is allowed in Photoshop? What am I allowed to do and still have my photograph be considered pure?

    imo this is a narrow view, ps not only enhances what is possible but also opens new doors. my guess is you don’t understand ps or despise praise given to an amateur with greater ps skill but lesser photographic skill. both skills are important today in my amateur opinion.
