Victor HabbickVictor Habbick is a photographer, artist, designer and member of ePHOTOzine's Pro critique team. His work is published world wide and he supplies stock markets on a regular basis. His advice will range from kit choices and editing software to supplying agencies and finding inspiration. He describes his work as having commercial sensibilities with a touch of the surreal and you can find out more about this by visiting his ePHOTOzine profile or by visiting his personal website: Victor Habbick.

Here's his tip:

"With my particular style of photography involving much montage or photo manipulation there are always going to be the traditionalist who will nail you to the cross and outcast you from society as if you have carried our some photographic heresy. Just ignore all the venom as best you can and concentrate on your photo images. Photography is all about manipulation in one form or another, whether you are limiting your depth of field, pushing the speed or polarising a blue sky. Its all about getting the image you want and what you are happy with. Enjoy your photography and don't be put off by all the pixel haters.

Photography by its very nature is manipulating reality in one way or another. I just choose to manipulate it to my own particular take on reality, like this picture shows."

I don't mind Computer manipulated images from digital cameras or film provided that there is a statement that the image has been manipulated or that the manipulation is obvious . Otherwise the impartiality of news and media photographers to record events truthfully will always be suspect and open to questioning .
