I have been a professional photographer all my adult life. I still get immense satisfaction when I see my work in print or published on the internet. It is said an image is worth a 1000 words and a good one helps sell or promote your business. These days with social media marketing it is vital that your goods are displayed to their best. Having had so much experience both prior to digital with film we shot back then with out the need to do post production. Then it was shot straight without retouching unless of course it just couldn't be done any other way. The image below is straight out of camera all be it digital.
