More on FAQ #308

308. How can I make impressive photographs that qualify as TCQ if I can’t use my unique post-processing “look”?

(#308 is a follow-up to the answer to #307.)

The same way photographers have been making impressive photographs for almost 200 years.

When viewers find TCQ-qualified photographs to be “impressive-looking,” it is because of timeless “tools” like

subject matter,
composition,
vantage point,
equipment choice,
camera settings,
timing,
and
handling of light
in the scene.

For examples of impressive TCQ-qualified photographs made using these tools but not “a unique processing look,” see the photos linked to the Photos page and also the work of the 100 famous photographers.
