What Is The Right Amount Of Photo Retouching?

April 30, 2014
When we read about the controversy of highly photo shopped images once used by Ralph Lauren; we are deluged by various questions related to digital manipulation of images. We wonder whether it’s a good idea to get images enhanced by using various available Softwares. If yes, how much is too much? As with the advent of digital era, there is almost no limit to what can be done to a simple looking image.A debate like this is more related to debate of ethics of photography versus aesthetics of photography.
 

When a photographer takes any image, it is generally an interpretation of reality; what he sees and how he sees? Like in below posted “Crying Angel” image, I was not trying to cross the ethical line of photography but on the other hand I intended to put forward this theme about the hardships that our mother nature is going through these days that are causing even an angel cry in heaven. And eventually it will mark the new beginning with this realisation. We all know that clicking any angel in this pose or let’s face the truth clicking any angel is not a realistic. But it represents a theme that is developed with good intentions; sp usage of photo retouching becomes justifiable in this case. Though we won’t be able to find a black or white answer to whether usage of Photoshop techniques is acceptable or not. But one thing can’t be shrugged off that it works as a paint brush for photographers with creative and innovative mind. Only questions to answer while correcting or retouching any image are why are we manipulating it in the first place and for what purposes?
