Photoshop -- a four-letter word. A major-market automotive editor and longtime friend called a while back. He was looking for a full-time staff photographer and asked if I could recommend someone. He'd been interviewing applicants for months. He was frustrated. "They're all wizards with Photoshop", he says, "but none of them can shoot." I've heard it before. Generation Y is the Photoshop generation. Most of his prospects have had Photoshop as long as they've had cameras so rather than learning to make the cleanest possible images in the camera, they often rely on their computer skills for best results. Not a problem in advertising where one image makes an ad, but that's hardly a successful plan for deadline editorial shooters doing complete articles in just a few hours. My method is simple: get it right in the camera. Today's digital cameras have roughly the same dynamic range as the slide film they've replaced. All of the world's best magazines were using images shot straight onto slide film long before Photoshop or even the term "personal computer" was in the dictionary. I shoot every image as if it will never see Photoshop because I know that every minute I hold a mouse is a minute I could be shooting. Many people consider Photoshop a necessity. For me, it's a last resort...and a four-letter word.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
