Episode 110: Where is your line

Episode Number:

This week’s podcast is all about the crossing lines in our photography. There are always lines in photography that photographers have to think about. Most photographers think about lines in composition when they are thinking about the line. From leading lines to rule of thirds, there are always lines in the frame.

However, there are also a number of other lines that photographers have to consider. For some photographers, it is the line to digital alter a file. From removing objects, move objects and removing objects, what constitutes too much editing. For each person, I think that it is different. I know from my own work that I am fine with digitally editing work more so in some images than others.

For most of us, it will come down to our personal ethos and awareness of our definition of what makes something cross that line. As you listen to the podcast, my hope is that you start to define the line for you so that you know what is too much.


I am teaching at a couple of conferences over the next few months. If you are attending Photoshop World in Orlando this week, please stop by and say hi. I will be teaching two classes. One on sharpening in Lightroom and the other is about the fine art digital print. In May, I am teaching two sessions for CreativeLive’s Photoshop Week. You can tune in and see those sessions live. A wonder week of fantastic training. I am so excited to be part of both.

Don’t forget to check out my 2017 Workshops including the Perceptive Photographer Workshop focused on the intersection side of photography.
