Then, why are you doing photography at all? Nearly all of photography, since its inception, has been about bending and distorting the truth to something that we think that we would have liked to have seen, as opposed to what was really there.

Do you dodge? Do you burn? Do you alter contrast? Do you use filters? In reality, photography is nothing but a lie.

But, that is also why many of us love it.

Just sayin'....
