“Never say never, for if you live long enough, chances are you will not be able to abide by its restrictions.”—Gloria Swanson

“There are three key things for good photography: a camera, lighting, and Photoshop.”—Tyra Banks

Ever since the Pictorialist movement began in 1885 photographers have enjoyed applying what many would call “special effects” to their images. The Modernist movement that started in 1914 began a shift toward tack-sharp realism, but the emergence of the digital...

"C'mon Honey, let's go make some noise."--The Bangles
