Before and After

As I was working through my latest photo session it kinda dawned on me that not a lot of people really know what goes in to making a photo beautiful.
We all see those gorgeous photos in books and on walls and we know they are great to look at but maybe we don’t always realize it was a lot more than a shutter press to get that picture to its maximum potential. The picture above is an example of that…the original straight out of the camera shot is great but because cameras don’t see the light like we do it lacks that ‘pop’ that we all love. The ‘pop’ comes in at home, on that good ol’ computer, in the digital darkroom (AKA photoshop).
What happens there depends entirely on your photographers artistic vision (hopefully, you have picked a photog’ whose style works with yours) and of course the subject matter.
That all said, my point comes down to this; a photographer’s work is not done just because the session is over…
