Just Fix It in Photoshop

Back when I was acting, the common joke when anyone made a mistake or anything went wrong was “It’s fine, we’ll just fix it in post!” meaning we can take care of it in post production. To an extent, there’s a similar sentiment among photography clients that anything can be fixed with Photoshop.

Luckily we are able to make some corrections these days that used to take hours in a matter of seconds!

However, while Photoshop and Lightroom and other editing tools offer great flexibility with how we deliver images and allow us to overcome problems that can arise while shooting, clients can get the wrong idea about how difficult it is to make some changes.

Also, we shouldn’t stop striving to get things right in camera. I am not sure why any photographer would want to spend more time editing when they could get it correct in camera. But maybe that’s just me. Having someone tell me “Just fix it in Photoshop” makes my skin crawl.
