I am a graphic designer, and I do not say proffessional photographer, that said, I do not spend so much time editing, unless I want a particular effect. But for example the series in light painting, is more time taken in decision-saw, and almost no retouching.
That’s my point. As a professional retoucher I see too much photographies which take much more time in post-production rather in production. And not because we’re looking for a particular effect… This is a real disease.
