Capturing beautiful images is just the first step in the creative process. Once your session has ended all your photographs are closely reviewed and analyzed. Some people ask why they don't receive every photograph I take? The answer is simple, do you want a picture where you're blinking, or making a goofy face? This is why only the best photographs are selected to undergo my 21-step Signature Editing Service.
My editing process begins with color adjustment and cropping. From there every aspect of the photograph is evaluated to make each photograph as beautiful as possible. My philosophy is every picture tells a story, and is also part of a much large theme. Much like a writer hones and crafts each sentence, my photographs are fine tuned individually to make your entire session fit together seamlessly.
Most photographers simply use a few selected preset filters for their pictures, much like the simple programs on our camera phones and Facebook. But for me, that's not what art is about. It's about creating my vision, and crafting amazing photographs that truly capture the spirit of the moment. This process is neither fast nor simple, but nothing of value is produced quickly. By paying attention to these simple details and have created a unique style of my own, and it's seen in every picture I deliver.
Every session I photograph receives my Signature Editing Service, from the 30-minute family session to a 10-hour wedding. For clients that want a little more, I also off the Signature Editing Service PLUS package. As shown below, this additional step enchants the photographs further by applying my custom designed retouching and editing brushes. With this additional step skin becomes smoother, colors become more alive and the photograph jump off the page. When printed on our special Metallic Paper, you will have a photograph to cherish for a lifetime.
Here is the original photograph to demonstrate the process.
This image is straight out of the camera. It captures the joy and happiness of childhood, and is technically a good photograph.
