Usually when someone sees a great photo on the socials, the first question or statement that a photographer usually hears is, "What lens did you use?" or "Wow, you must have a really great camera."
Now don't get me wrong, the tool is very important along with lighting, composition and subject that is in your frame. But another huge piece of a photographer's style is the way he or she EDITS the photo. And usually editing is what takes a huge chunk of time in the creative process. Whether it's film shooters in the darkroom or digital shooters in Photoshop, both processes are hugely important to the overall aesthetics of your photograph.
