Not sure if anyone ever wondered why I am using “untouchedtcphotos” and what I am about?

I started this blog of my photography back in 2012.  It started with photographs taken from my first trip to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario Canada.  This was my first encounter with a real Fall Foliage.  I got so excited with the array of colors and the various trees and plants.  I could have spent much more time photographing the landscape if I had the time.  We were visiting my mother-in-law’s family, and they were so happy and hospitable to take me to sights they never showed my wife (she is not as much as a nature buff as I am).  After this visit, I could not wait to plan another visit.

So with all these photographs, somehow we decided to display on a blog not knowing what to do with a blog.

I am an old school photographer who has learned how to do “photoshop” on my images.  I do love to see other people’s photographs with the “different” colors and appreciate their art in their pictures.

See this article about Kerry Washington’s objection to her “photoshopped” image —

I know at times when I photograph, I want the ideal lighting to give me the photograph I want.  I need to either wait for that moment which may never come or settle for the natural lighting that is available at that time.  It would be so easy to settle and say – well I can just photoshop to lighten the image.

Thus this is how “untouchedtcphotos” came into being.  I want to show real images of things I love.  I want to be a photographer who is seeking to take quality images.  I do not want to be a photographer who takes photographs with the idea I can photoshop the picture to make it better or to fix it.  That is just my opinion.
