Next time someone dumps on photoshop and says they get it right in the camera like the old masters did we should whip this page on them. Master printers were the photoshop of the masters. Film had its limits and images have always needed massaging.
I agree 100% People who really don't understand photography don't realize it's a "process". There is capture. Then there is process, development and print. It has ALWAYS been that way. Even a Polaroid had to be developed. But even IT could be manipulated.
Film and digital chips have limitations and we can only do so much "in camera", so the rest we rely on the processing, development, retouching and printing stages...of the process.
