to edit, or not to edit
I wonder; do you do any post processing to your film shots at all? Why/why not?
I used to never edit my film shots, but now I do it sometimes. Only simple things like "auto contrast" and/or "auto levels" in Photoshop Elements 2.0 (nope, I still haven't gotten around to getting a different photo editing program). For some reason I feel like I'm cheating when I edit my film shots, and I'm not sure why. Maybe because I feel like I should have done all the "editing" when I took the photo in the first place.
As you can see the photos above (taken yesterday morning right before I took this) are a little different; the first one is not edited, the other one is edited with "auto contrast". I'm not sure which one I prefer, I think I like them both. Or maybe I prefer the unedited one. Hm.
