Half true, this was developing with film... Heck even lightroom and photoshop calls them filters.
+1 someone hot link images here...
Lightroom is basically digital "developing" of RAW files. Also while I can't get up Lr on this computer I dont' recall it calling halftoning or converting to "proper" black and White filters.
In school you're taught to think and act like others. Creativity has no part in that.
Photoshop and lightroom, and other developing tools are greatly different, and serve different purposes.
once again, if you take good pictures, people will like them. period.
Who cares about the technicalities? Only weirdos who think they're more professional.
Basically it comes down to artistic/creative choice. Some people like and prefer their pictures in Black and white or Sepia toning. that doesn't make them filter abusers, it just means that's how they like to have their pictures. sure some people overdo sepia toning and put in way to much color, but that's just down to lack of experience and training.
You've no idea how I like to break the rules of thirds
I'd say today, the rules of thirds themselves show a lack of creativity, Everyone knows about them, it's the first thing they're thought in amateur photography 101, and in every "your first photograph" in any camera manual. and people stick stuff in thirds for no good reason whatsoever.
yet in photoshop they are all called filters... what you are looking at under the develop tab is "presets" for fast "developing" aka contrast / color correction...not real "filters" which do more
Well he's talking about LightRoom, NOT photoshop. one is an photo editor, the other a photo developer/manager.
