[filmscanners] Re: shoot first, fix it later

I think it's perfectly valid to "shoot first, fix later"  if that's the most 
expedient way
to get it done - Say you need a quarter page image of a particular tall 
building--does it
make more sense to shoot a consumer digital and fix the perspective in 
Photoshop, or drag
out the 4 x 5 so you have shifts for perspective control? Conversely, is it 
quicker to
spend a minute giving a model's skin a little powder, or spend a half hour 
retouching to
fix the same problem? It's important to know how to achieve an image in both a 
and a fix-later methodology so you can determine which one is most efficient in 
a given
situation--neither one is always the right or even reasonable answer.

Where trouble arises is with Photoshop-illiterate types who think computers 
provide instant
miracles, and thus feel free to shot sloppily, then scream when they get the 
bill for two
hours retouching. It's never "Gosh, I should have shot more carefully." it's 
"What kind of
a worthless computer operator are you that it took you two hours to do this. 
Why, if I
learned computers I could've done it in 10 minutes."
