" (He) used the type of camera that he would normally use to shoot celebrities in a studio.
The photographs have gone through the same post-production process that he would use for a commercial shoot, adding contrast, sharpening the images, and desaturating the colours. For Wilson, the post-production editing enabled him to crush the tones and recreate exactly the harsh glare of the sun in the Helmand desert. "


Which makes all the difference. If only K25 was alive...Manipulating the RAW image is an area I'd fancy getting into when I have the time. One small point of criticism is over-the-top treatment of sky in the landscape, either by polarising it or on the computer. But then, some of my masterpieces look like they were shot on Mars, so I can't complain.
