Lots of people ask me if I teach editing classes. I am the first to admit that I am SO far from knowing much at all about photoshop ( I use it often but my skills are quite limited). You’ll hear me say it a million times, but I strongly believe in taking awesome photos in camera so there isn’t much need for editing later. Most of my “edited” images are just fast basic enhancements in Lightroom.

However, on the topic of editing, I found some fabulous articles that are worth a look!

1. How to Avoid 25 Common Editing Mistakes
2.Warning: 10 Deadly Post Processing Sins

I remember when I first started digital photography that I was completely enamored by the ability to “manipulate” a picture in an editing program.  So much so, that I often committed all the “mistakes” and “sins” that these articles point out (and sometimes we don’t even know its a mistake until someone points it out…)

I’m completely guilty of nearly all of them!  But I think I’ve finally settled down a bit to prefer a more timeless look that isn’t going to mocked in blog articles like these in the future… hopefully!

  1. Thanks for the article, I have to admit that was me, not knowing much about taking the right picture, and working really hard at editing. Thanks to your class I have learned so much and now its like I see it all in a new light. I can’t thank you enough for teaching such a good class it is priceless to me to have a good foundation! Your awesome!

    Thanks Maria

  2. Did you write this for me? Okay…I’ll “try” not to break so many rules. (I wouldn’t have to if my target would hold still long enough for me to get everything set for a good shot…)
