This post was ready to go live last week, I took some pictures posted it on some of my forums and many of my photographer friends thought I could do a better job on the images. That was really enough to push me to restyle and reshoot. This post is really to all the amazing people out there who think that a camera in one hand and photoshop in another you can make great images. Am sorry to burst your bubble, photographers work very hard at their craft, we are constantly stretching our selves. If camera and Ps made images, I would not need to cook again and restyle and reshoot.
Phew! am glad that was easy and is off my chest now. Overconfidence and lack of confidence are both harmful for a creative person, but when good critique comes from reliable sources, it’s always wise to embrace it. That is the only way to grow, at least for me. So thank you guys! Also, kind of went overboard with my camera, picture heavy post ;)
The rejected image is after the jump break.
Before I forget two things, First, Thanks Neel for adding Turmeric and spice to the Amazing food photographers with amazing food photo list. Quite an honor to be featured with some of the major players and amazing photographers. ( doing the happy dance here).
Second, saw some of my images stolen and used without my permission. You may wonder why I do not have watermark on my images, well I do and it is embedded in my images. Wonder why people steal…. !! Well, I will keep that rant for another day.
