The jaded photographer

Over dinner last night, my friend and I lamented how jaded we’ve become looking at the latest photos in magazines and news sources across the web. Before I got into photography and invested in a DSLR, what impressed me the most with photos I loved was the way these photos captured light. After dummy-proof photo editing apps like Instagram have made adjusting so simple, and once you know exactly how much editing is done to turn an ordinary photo into a masterpiece, the more skeptically you look at any photo and think, “Sure, this looks great, but how natural is it, and how much does it truly capture what the photographer really saw?”
