My photography is almost always manipulated. This could be a panoramic image made up of several images through to a overlay montage or a replaced sky in a landscape. I’m happy as long as the manipulation is not too obvious.
“Every image is manipulated. The act of choosing a viewpoint and a point in time to take the photograph is manipulation.”
Nikon and Hasselblad in the past but now mostly Sony mirror-less A7r with Zeiss and Leica lenses.
Mac and PC, Eizo ColorEdge monitors, Wacom tablets and Lacie RAID.
Adobe Bridge, Photoshop and Lightroom.
