First of all, “SOOC” is this idea that you aren’t a real photographer unless you can “get it right in camera” and not do any editing to your photo.

Which is just stupid.

First of all, there is nothing right, or wrong about editing or not editing your photos.

“SOOC” is just another stupid argument that people on the internet like to have. The real photographers like you and I are out there taking some damn photos, not arguing on the internet.

But, there is a kernel of a good idea behind “SOOC”, and that is worth keeping in mind when you’re out there shooting.

Watch the video for the idea that was mutated into a stupid internet argument.
