If you’ve ever been caught on a traffic camera, chances are you’ve received the letter notifying you that you need to pay a fine. This recently happened to a woman in Germany who got a photo of herself speeding in a tunnel in her husband’s car. The only problem was: that wasn’t her. In fact, she didn’t even have a driver’s license and her husband apparently had something to share after this.
As creatives, particularly photographers or filmmakers, we’re often accused of “cheating” for using certain techniques and processes. Everything from using presets and LUTs to removing elements of a scene in Photoshop or After Effects. If you haven’t been accused of cheating yet, don’t worry, you probably will at some point.
YouTuber YCImaging certainly has, and in this video, he talks about three of the things he’s been accused of cheating for when it comes to his filmmaking process. Have you been accused of these? Do you use these techniques yourself?
