Should photographers use Photoshop? The great debate…

  1. I totally agree with one exception. Documentary photography aka journalism that is claiming to be a true document of an event should not be altered. Imagine the consequences of war photographers and journalists photoshopping their images (and I know they do).

    1. I can only speak to my personal experience. I don’t know squat about photojournalism or its ground rules. However, I am sure you are right. I think the rule of following your client’s wishes would apply here as well. I don’t condone deceptive business practices in any way, shape or form. That includes retouching outside the knowledge and consent of your client. That is a sure fire fast track to unemployment and a ruined reputation.
