While Manny does wonders to a photograph during the post-process (he’s a Photoshop expert), the photography guru emphasizes the importance of getting the image right straight from the camera. The photo above is proof of that; this has not gone through any post processing whatsoever – straight from the camera, the photo was resized only for the Web, proof also of Manny’s superlative skills as a photographer.
