The thing I found (as goes for the people who bash horsemanship training practices) is they have never tried it, do not know what it is about and are jumping to conclusions.
These images you see here would have been disregarded if it were not for the wonderful technology of image editing software. I do not claim to be an expert at this, I do what simply looks best. It can be a lot of fun, or a lot of frustration.
Roll your mouse over each edited image to see the before.
See the difference? What do you prefer?
Who can spot what I did with one of the image sets. Hmm tricky, tricky. (Don't post if you have already seen the "original, original" let others guess.)
Sometimes I post SOOC (Strait out of camera) images but most of the time there are small changes made or just a signature added.
I also shoot in RAW (RAW is basically a digital negative and it needs to be processed in light room or similar program before it can be viewed as a JPG or other image file type) so I have to process every image I take. I use lightroom and photoshop but I have been known time to time when in a pinch to use the free software on this handy dandy site Picnik. If you don't want to spend the couple hundred $$ on photo editing software it might be worth it to pay for premium Picnik. If you are just puttering around it's far more worth your money to use this neat site. Check it out.
What photo editing software do you use? Or are you a SOOC person?
