No filters — a real challenge

Yes, yes and thrice yes — so filters are just one part, there is the whole photo editing thing that we photographers now instinctively do. I can remember a time not that long ago that we couldn’t see, edit and manipulate images because we had to wait at least a day for photos to be developed (we didn’t have colour labs at home) — so we were forced to take better images at the outset… film and developing cost money. Filters, yes we had bits of plastic by a company called Cokin — the landscape people still use them because they are useful, but again it wasn’t exactly insta.

The desire to take better images is natural, as is the desire to curate, yet the whole beauty of this idea you’re putting out is to question how far is too far? Why do we need to filter, edit and curate and how does this affect the way we think?

It’s going to be a challenge, but surely that’s why it’s worth doing…
