Photo editing fun

When a photographer takes your picture, there is so much more to getting a good image than pushing a button.  Images straight out of the camera are not fit for purchase. Well, at least when I take them, they’re not! Some editing needs to be done.  I still had some images of Sweetpea that I took for the agency that were not fit to send.  At the time, I didn’t have the time to play around with them, but today Photoshop and I had a long conversation.  I don’t claim to be the best at photo editing, but I know what looks good to me.


This is how the picture looked straight out of the camera(or SOOC):



And here it is after I worked my magic (click on the photos to see them bigger):



That represents 30 – 60 minutes of work.  So when you see a photographers prices, remember:  It’s not JUST about taking the picture.

    I also enjoy editing and enhancing photos. As a matter of fact, I have used lots of photo editors and I make sure that I will try to make use of all the tools that are available. Thanks a lot for sharing us a sample of your photo. It really made the photo live and enhanced.
