Old School Photo Editing

Recommended Posts

Neat.

My dad was just telling me about Ansel Adams who was basically doing a lot of the stuff we take for granted in photoshop in an actual darkroom, well before digital photography was even a thought in someone's mind.

Thanks for posting!

I think a lot of people don't realize that photo editing existed (extensively)before the existence of "evil" Photoshop. I had one person tell me they wish people would just use pictures right of the camera, like Ansle Adams did before the days of photoshop.... clearly having no idea that he was a great photographer, but even more skilled with the Photoshop (dark room) of the day.
