Naaah, I'm just... Ehm... I prefer to have what I need in-camera, and not waste time digitally afterwards, that's all. Like my old concert photos here, they're straight from the camera. (Okay, sure, scaled them down a bit in Photoshop, but otherwise, they're untouched. No levels, no cropping, no nothing.) It may be a bit harder, but you'll get around to it (if you wanna), since (AFAIK) you take a whole lot more pictures than me anyways.
Also; I'm crap at Photoshop.
Oh, and I have a picture that doesn't cut her head in the top. Found it boring and dull and ordinary, that's why I chose this instead.
Ghetto mods are the most fun. Photography doesn't need to be expensive; you don't have to waste cash on reflector shields and flashes and whatnot when you can use tinfoil/mirrors/paper/etc. Most of my product photography backinthedays got done with laaarge sheets of paper (which was easily available out at the printing presses), daylight aaand the 5000-5200 Kelvin light fixtures in the office. Oh, and the kit Nikon D70. All I ever needed, really.
Photography isn't really hard. A little bit of practice, a bit of messing around, and a good eye. That's all.
