Whatever I think improves them...I don't care much what other people think...
Noble in theory, but impractical in reality.
I care what my models think; if they like my work then I get more and better models to work with.
And, I certainly care what my paying clients think. You want the whole photo in black and white except for the eyes to be in color? Sure, I can do that, but it's a specialized technique [read: i hate doing it] so there will be an additional charge.
When money enters in, - then, for a price, I become a liar, - and a good one I can be whether with pencil or subtle lighting or viewpoint. I hate it all, but so do I support not only my family, but my own work. - Edward Weston
