Photography is more than just a way to capture reality. It’s a tool that is used for creative expression. When taking a photo, the photographer chooses the object, the lens, the conditions, the exposure - everything.
Digital photography makes image processing much simpler, but even if you take a RAW file straight from your memory card and load it on your computer, some processing has already been done to it by the camera itself. The camera’s hardware interprets the sensor image data, applies the white balance, decides how to sharpen, and where to reduce noise.
Photoshop is not a must have
