Photography is Incomplete Without Good Retouching

I firmly believe that in today’s world photography is incomplete without good retouching. Our industry has changed so much over the last few decades that ignoring retouching is equivalent to believing that learning the intricacies of composition is unnecessary. Am I wrong? I want this article to promote conversation. We live in a world where we’re allowed to have our own opinions and I’d love to hear yours in the comments at the end.
Photography Industry Has Changed, Or Has It?
In years gone past, before digital cameras and Photoshop, when photographers didn’t make significant adjustments to their photos, photography was pure. It was better. People knew what they were seeing was real and as a result photography was better.

Difference between image formats (JPEG, TIFF and RAW)

JPEG, TIFF and RAW are image file formats that nearly all DSLR cameras can use.

And only some high end DSLRs offer the TIFF format as it’s the best among all three and most of the professionals prefer this. Continue reading to learn more about each type of photo file format.

JPEG is the standard image format in digital cameras, especially inexpensive point and shoot cameras. JPEG uses compression format to remove some pixels that the compression algorithm deems unimportant, thereby saving some storage space. The compression will take place in areas of the photo where the colors of the pixels repeat, such as in a photo that shows a lot of blue sky. The software inside the camera will compute the compression level at the time the camera saves the photo, so the reduced storage space occurs immediately, saving space on the memory card.
