Rizwan: There is nothing like that because every gadget is necessary for photography and I always wish to have more.
In the field, what are your settings?
Rizwan: Well it all depends upon the lighting for taking a picture and for every single picture I have to change my camera setting because I never use my camera on auto mode and on manual mode every time when I think of clicking the image, I usually change the settings according to the light and framing.
Where as editing is concerned, I like to take pictures with perfect lighting and framing into the camera so that I don’t need to use different software’s for editing, I believe that a perfect picture can be taken in the camera and don’t have to use the software to make it correct – though I use Adobe Photoshop to place my watermark and a little bit of polishing my images.
