My sister in law, who returned to photography a year ago, has finally given up on her D750. We both have the same camera, I love it, she hates it....but we shoot different subjects. She loves to shoot landscapes and just can't get on with it....below are a few extracts from her messages to me... "Hi, really sorry, but the camera is going! Took it out Saturday and Sunday and didn't get one decent photo, tried loads of different settings, but it is just so flat on landscapes, the landscape detail is much better on my Canon 350d! Admittedly, it is a fantastic portrait camera, but I love landscape and it's just not doing what I want it to do! I have shot in both JPEG and RAW and it really didn't make any difference on the landscape shots! I like to see an image in front of me and capture it! All the photos I take on the Canon I don't need to edit, apart from cropping or changing to B&W, I love them as they are. For me going into lightroom and editing them defeats what I set out to do, capturing a real moment in time, the way the light hits a field or mountain etc, I don't want to have to go and change and enhance it, I want to capture what I saw in front of me, what inspired me to take that shot in the first place! Maybe I am too arty party lol, but I am not great at all the techy stuff!!" So now she's selling her camera & lenses and considering a Canon, but has budget limitations given the hit she has to take selling stuff second hand. Which got me wondering....I view digital photography as a two step process.....capture the image, then enhance it on the computer back home. As you can see, my sister in law just wants to capture what's in front of her as it looks at that moment, which doesn't seem an unreasonable expectation. Landscapes aren't my thing, but I see some fantastic images in the weekly competitions and the Photo of the Day post....so how much editing do you do with these? Do any of you aim to shoot as close as possible in camera, with minimal editing?
