With the power of post-processing software these days, there seems to be less concern for doing things correctly in-camera. Between colors, dust, folds, lines, shadows, makeup, HDR, filters, compositing and even lighting adjustments, the limits of post-production are seemingly endless. There is definitely something to be said for not spending hours in front of the computer, though. Often times, 5 - 10 minutes of adjustments during the shoot can save hours of pixel pushing on the back end. Whether or not you fine tune things yourself or have a stylist helping, do you try to get the entire shot perfect in camera or do you shoot more with ‘intent to process’?

As long as the main subject is perfect, Post can do the rest.
