Re: Not necessarily

Ansel Adams spent days/week experimenting with exposures, dodging, burning , chemical mixes, etc. to find a proper printing technique.

Those who know what a dichroic-color head enlarger is chuckle at how much easier post processing is these days.

But most folks used to depend on labs to do the work, and they only did the basics.  Serious self-processing took dedication. Today it's just some software.

It's a question of effort.  You can shoot right out of the box, you can learn picture styles and use them effectively, you can use Lightroom, or you can go all in with Photoshop.

But it's certainly more accessible these days.
