"Photography to me is capturing a moment which is about to pass, and that's the truth." This beautiful quote by Jacques-Henri Lartigue largely sums up why we all simply love and adore photos. They act as a window to past memories and perhaps, that's the reason why we always go an extra mile to preserve them!
Photographs hold a special place in our lives – They are frozen memories and they need to be perfect (for very obvious reasons). In fact, now with growing trends of Instagram and other photo sharing applications and sites, having bright, flawless and clear photos has become 'mandatory' for many of those tech-savvy social butterflies.
However, sometimes, no matter, how good the photographer is; the end-result (image) turns out to be dull and blurred or worst, and sometimes photobombed. At this point, enters image editing & retouching. Popularly known as photo manipulation; this art has become as popular as photography! Always shrouded by criticism (mostly by feminists, who feel that this is against healthy body image); image manipulation has been a hot-topic of discussion.
Anyways, let's not get tangled in controversies and concentrate on why image editing is not as bad as it usually portrayed. Camera; no matter, how advanced it is; it still has some limitations – accept it or not; sometimes, the image might get blurred due to bad lighting or the surroundings.
In short, normal photos can turn into glistening stylish photographs just by applications of various image alteration techniques. Though, there are various app available for the same; hiring or contacting a professional is certainly the right move; as the result delivered will be way beyond perfection and professionalism.
