These days to be a great photographer, one doesn’t need fancy cameras, amazing lighting equipment and years of studying the art of a good shot. No, today all you need is Photoshop skills to make any of your pictures win international awards. It somehow cheapens the value of those photos, in my opinion.
Then, of course, there are badass photographers who can frame a perfect shot with an old film camera and their eyes closed (metaphorically speaking), creating mesmerizing masterpieces, and capturing those magic moments showing the spectacular diversity of our modern life and the wild side of nature
Let me show you 25 of my favorite photographs that were taken without using Photoshop.
