When I first started out, the one photographer who inspired me the most, was and still is, National Geographic photographer, Jason Edwards. Apart from the great work he does, I always remember the advice he gave, on one of his shows. As much as possible, get it right in the camera, don’t over process your images and don’t spend too much time processing them. (not exactly word for word, its been a while).
