To Photoshop or not to Photoshop...did Shakespeare have to be concerned with this?
Truthfully, I do "tweak" the images a little bit. I'll remove a hair, maybe brighten some teeth, exchange eyes that are opened for eyes that are closed. But editing has it's limitations. If you forget to take your glasses off then your picture will have glasses on. Can photoshop edit them out, yes with considerable time and effort, way more than you taking the time to take them off in the first place. Photoshop comes in very handy though when you have several similiar images and you just want everyone looking at the camera in "one". Heads shot in the same lighting become very adjustable. I love sibling group shots because you can "prove" they liked each other "once upon a time". Love is a living thing, share it so it can grow.
