Pointing your camera and pressing the shutter button is only half of the process in photography. Editing the photo and adding the artist’s creativity is the other half (and commonly overlooked by many).
Building Value for my Clients
The photo above was very important for my client. These 4 ladies were responsible for putting together a every important event and needed a photo to represent them professionally in the public’s eye.
After a few attempts with minor obstacles (blinking, people walking in the background, and not being ready) I was able to combine separate visual elements to create a single photograph rich in detail, sharp in focus and of course, vibrant in color. Delivering a valuable photo that can be used to represent my client in the best possible light.
Can you spot all of the visual elements I adjusted or changed?
Replaced blinking eyes (lady on the left)
Removed distracting lady (lady in the background)
Color Correction (original image too yellow)
At the end of the day, the only thing that really matters is what the final image looks like and how it will represent you or your business. If you look at the screenshot from my client’s social media feed, what kind of impression do you get when looking at the photo? (Successful, Professional, they look Amazing?)
The real value in photography is not the price you paid, but the usability of those images. If your photos are bad and you can’t use them- it doesn’t matter how cheap your photographer was, it was a waste.
I am not trained in photography, how do I know if a photo is bad?
What are you thoughts of the final image? Do you feel this represents their organization in a professional way? Do you like my style of shooting and editing? If so, let’s do this - I am ready to help!
