I have been wanting to write this post forever!!!
I swear I have a list in my head of a million things I need to blog but life is crazy right now.
Any whooooo, I am so happy to finally share this post though.
I showed a glimpse of a SOOC image a lil while ago – and for you non photogs out there SOOC means: Straight out of Camera. In other words the image has not been altered in any way.
I get a lot of clients/photogs who want to know how I process my images so here it is:
Here is a straight out of camera image-
clients this is not a stage you will ever see as all the photos I give to my clients are edited =)
Now here is a color corrected image-
This stage of editing is to correct the color of the image. Making it pop a bit and adjusting the hues of the image. These are going to be the images that I give my clients!
Photogs * I use FOTOFAFA for all my color correcting work, outsourcing has been the best thing for me and Kenny is absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend checking them out!
Now here is a blog image (artistically edited image)/album/print image-
This stage of editing is a bit more intricate. Anything that I post on my blog (my favorite images from a wedding/session) is finely edited only by me. The image is color correct as well (see above) just by me, and then I put a lil twist of vintage into the photo. Not much since I like to keep the integrity of the photo. I also remove blemishes, make eyes pop a bit, and go over the picture with a fine tooth comb to make it web/album/print ready. All of my album images are artistically edited as well as my professional print orders.
Not a huge difference from start to finish but I like the extra ooomf that I get out of the image!
Soon I will post my post processing recipes =) since those are always fun to share!
Hope this was a helpful post =)
