Transcript: "How much Photoshop is too much? Personal question really. I'm saying meaning personal to you. Only you can decide how much Photoshop is too much. When it really when it comes down to it, it doesn't matter what other people think if they feel Photoshop is too much when they look at your work because it's work that they didn't create. Now if I were to look at it just from my own perspective how much Photoshop is too much is when the Photoshop takes away from the intent that I meant to create. If it takes away what I was hoping to convey with the image that I captured. So sometimes you know if you're editing a picture and you're just you know you find yourself looking at it too long you may just kind of go overboard based on your own expectations because remember that that's key. What is your expectation? So if I'm too far off the mark from what I actually wanted that's when I know you probably took it a little bit too far but that may not have been the intent you know that other people may want. They may look at something that I've created it's like oh if I would have taken that I would have not photoshopped it the same way she would have done and that's fair for someone else to feel that way but I think in order to kind of create a style and be I guess known for the work that you create you got to be consistent. So if your photoshopping is consistent no one can tell you that it's too much. Hope that helps."
