Regarding photography…obviously one needs a good camera, the bulky three dimensional unwieldly kind, not so much the flat kind that comes in pink and fits discreetly in your purse. Mine is a Nikon D3000 , the most basic of all DSLR’s, the baby of the bunch. By the way, I highly recommend Amazon for this camera, they are underselling the Nikon website, so they can’t even display the price until you add the camera to your cart.
Then, most photos need a little, um, plastic surgery, by an amazing doctor called Photoshop! Just as I am telling myself most emphatically that I am NOT the kind of person who has 4 hours a day to spend tweeking photos…my words came back to bite me.
Here are some before and afters.
Before: nice photo, but doesn’t quite have that pop to it.
After: much better, dontcha think?
Or remember this picture from the El Jadida beach? I was pretty excited about it, before:
After: high drama!
So, next time you see photos that look too good, chances are they’ve had a little work done.
