I get it. Some post processing is over the top. For me, I am not a big fan of HDR photography, but with that said, I don’t go to an HDR photographers site and tell him his HDR photos suck. And I don’t tell people I think their post processing sucks either. Hopefully, over time, they’ll figure shit out for themselves and improve naturally. You can’t improve unless you make mistakes, eh? And over time, my shit will improve too, just as long as I keep at it. 
Anyway, one of my pet peeves is when I get a comment from someone who will go out of their way to tell me they shoot film because they don’t believe in post processing. That they want to “think” about their shots more.
The photographers we all look up to didn’t just snap a shot and say “this shit in the back of my camera forced me to think, and I’m going to be so fucking happy with the results when I get these cans developed at the cheapest lab I can find with a part time worker sitting at an expensive agfa all-in-wonder photo machine!”. NO. There was an entire POST PROCESS of printing a contact sheet, choosing the right photo, printing a larger version of the desired photos, and then drawing up editing notes for those final minutes at the enlarger. There is a really good article on the dying art of darkroom printing. It’s worth a read. And here is a clip of War photographer James Nachtwey with his assistant processing a photograph. Also worth a watch.
So, the next time you hear someone spew some shit about “hating” post processing, you’ll know what they really are; lazy fucking posers who don’t really know what they’re talking about.

I can write an encyclopedia of people who need to read this.

If everything is going upside down and you think you’re loosing the ground beneath your feet … make yourself a cup of tea, sit back, and laugh about how crazy the world is. It’s the only way to survive, really.
