Breaking Free From the Photograph

“You don’t take a photograph, you make it” – Ansel Adams
Even if you don't have equipment on hand, you can do some amazing things with a camera 📷 (even the one on your phone 😂). Everything, from the lighting to the angle to the background, is all visualized within your mind and captured through the lens.
Photographers do not simply "take pictures." We intertwine our knowledge with our imagination to create an aesthetically pleasing photograph. But "a photograph" isn't all that meets the eye either.
You see, it is a time machine. It takes a blip in time and preserves it.
As Photoshop artists, we take our photographs to the next level in the creation process. We are no longer confined by our environment or by the moment.
We can create whatever we want to better convey that magical moment, frozen in time.
