My photography- before and after the image editing
Today I wanted to share some before and after photos from my archives to show how much work it takes to create the pictures my clients receive. The photographer's job never ends with the click of a button. It's not even where it begins. It's just a midway point in creative process of producing a final photograph.
As a home studio photographer I struggle quite often with a space limitations. The most common editing issue for me is a background. As you can see in SOOC (strait out of camera) picture a part of a background is missing. Sometimes it's an easy fix, and the other time it's a very time consuming job.
I specialise in newborn photography and must say that the most retouching process is done on the baby's skin. When I open the picture I can see red blotchy skin, purple/grey feet, jaundice, flaky skin etc. I fix those issues in Photoshop as they are not so apparent in real life.
As a photographer I want my images to be perfect that's why I will always correct some details that are distracting me when I look at the picture like these wrinkles on a backdrop or little girl’s stitches under the nose as parents asked me to remove it.
Working with the little ones is like a challenge, they are not patient models and obviously won't listen our instructions how to pose etc. That's why sometime I need to compose two different pictures in one.
And sometimes I play with the picture to make it look like I want it or simply change the colour, as it is a boy and I don't have any other colour of floati that would work with a baby boy:-)
