1:24:51 PM Ci’en Xu: Sometimes it feels like in this day and age, editing is more redundant.
1:25:03 PM Brandon Lee: How do you mean?
1:25:56 PM Ci’en Xu: I remember the days when Flickr was kinda like a big social network, and people were more obsessed about the rules of photography and how you edited them, etc.
1:26:17 PM Ci’en Xu: I guess now with mobile, instant takes precedence over “perfect”.
1:27:06 PM Brandon Lee: Yeah you’re right.
1:27:31 PM Brandon Lee: Which is why I like Mattebox… it kinda makes you feel like getting it right in-camera is important again, and maybe even enough.
1:28:02 PM Brandon Lee: When you leave everything to the phone to do automatically, there’s always the sense that you must insert yourself into the process, and that can only happen in post.
1:28:19 PM Ci’en Xu: But I still like editing, even if just to let you linger on your photos for a little while longer.
