I qualified as a scientific photographer in 1985 and have worked in further education, forensic science and now as a photographer at a major museum on the south coast.  I shoot to give the highest fidelity to a subject and not use Photoshop to 'make a silk purse from a sow's ear' . Sometimes, when I am creating a picture I will shoot with Photoshop in mind and use it as a 'digital darkroom' so that the result is what I imagined before releasing the shutter.
