Intro: I consider myself more of an artist than a photographer. I do post-processing most of the time, I manipulate the colors sometimes. I know that not everybody appreciates the type of art i'm in but I don't really care because I am not doing this for them, I am showing how I visualize a photo, how I see things through the lens (Thanks to the words of inspiration from my idols' journal - Parc Cruz). Post-processing helps bring out what I want to achieve - to bring out the life and story of a simple photo. It is through post-processing that I find the beauty of simple things - things that most people take for granted. My camera is my paintbrush, photoshop is my medium, post-processing is my technique, and my photographs are the artistic expression of a creative mind.

There are two different roads photographers take:
- One may view photography as a craft defined by a process or the perfection of the technical execution.
- The other may view photography as an art, whose visual impact is more important, rather than the means of creating such an image. -PARC CRUZ

There are people who look down on me, saying I don’t really have “photographs” because I digitally enhance them or I have been deceiving my audience. That is like telling me - I am not really writing this piece, because I did not use real ink, but a computer machine to communicate what I want to write. -PARC CRUZ

Through the ages, many photographers have always strive to make their photos NOT just about capturing the moment. Through the ages, many notable photographers have tried to transcend the way they present their work. The only difference is, during those days, they didn’t have it easy because technology wasn’t available to them. You may find this interesting: noted photographer Ansel Adams’ Mt. Whitney was actually retouched to eliminate elements he did not want to include in his capture. Had he been alive today, who’s to say he won’t be experimenting digitally, too? -PARC CRUZ

At the heart of all photography is an urge to express our deepest personal feelings - to reveal our inner, hidden selves, to unlock the artist. Those of us who become photographers are never satisfied with just looking at someone else's expression of something that is dear to us. We must produce our own images, instead of buying postcards and photo books. We seek to make our own statements of individuality. -GALEN ROWELL
