my point is simple.

unless your goals are very low, you don't learn a thing from atta-boys. if being in the same pew as Christian is my lot in life, I'm pretty happy.

as far as my utter disgust with most glamour images posted on the internet, I hold photographers to a higher standard then most hold themselves.

if you can see that any retouching has been done, you've done to much.

if you can tell that PS was used on an image, it wasn't used correctly.

its a high standard.

a reachable standard.

you can light better, focus better, direct your make-up artist better, select a better model, learn to use PhotoShop better.

these are all attainable goals.

driving the computer to the point that the model has plastic skin gets you nowhere in the real world. 30 year old chicks have 30 year old skin. either light them softer, do better make-up, or let them look 30.
