Often I get asked "Will my pictures be edited?"
I like to tell my Clients that when I edit your image I am perfecting it. I am perfecting your favorite images to be displayed! :)
Here is a little more insight on my thoughts/technique of Editing my images....
Editing is a decision process and can be as simple as reviewing a series and deleting the bad shots, or doing a comparison between two or more to find the best shot. Editing can also include cropping for content. Then there is adjustments. Such as exposure and color corrections, or changing the color profile for a special image. Dodge and burn work is also very common, especially with the reduced dynamic range that digital photography has allowed for. Enhancements like skin tone, removing blemishes, removing busies/scratches (because we all know active toddlers have them!) and slimming certain areas. Alterations to the photos content (removing an unwanted item in a image such as a hand or a fly away piece of hair).
Every photographer has their own way of editing images. See below for a few examples of how I edit my images.
