A new world opened when digital photography came into being. Photographers nowadays have so many creative tools and if used properly can bring photography to a whole new level.
I personally love the photography editing process just as much as I love the actual act of capturing the images themselves. I feel that both are extremely important. Each photographer has her/his own editing style and preferences, which can really set her/him apart. I cherish the moments in my digital darkroom deciding how to edit a certain photo. The photo has to be a strong candidate to begin with. It has to be properly exposed, have good composition, good light, be sharp and so on… Then I can take this good photo and make it sing! I enjoy experimenting and learning new techniques.
My personal preference overall are final images that are deep, rich and full of color. On the other hand, though, light and airy edits certainly have their special place in my creative toolbox as well.
