Photo Correction & Retouching
The photo correction and retouching process that I use on photographs is a standard part of my editing before images are sent to the lab to be printed.
The most common corrections that I perform are:
- Density adjustments (lighten or darken)
- Colour correction (adding or subtracting warmth)
- Cropping (removing unnecessary background distractions), and
- Vignettes (slight darkening of the edges of an image)
The most common retouching that I add selectively to images include:
- Skin softening (not too much)
- Wrinkle reduction (subtle and usually around the eyes)
- Eye lightening
- Teeth whitening
These enhancements ensure that I can continue to nimbly capture lovely natural images and great moments, knowing that a nice layer of finesse can be added to images before they are printed.
Before and After
Here are some examples of images from a baby portrait session, where you can see both the before, the way the image was taken straight out of the camera, and the after, the way it looked before I had it printed for my clients. Anything printed will typically look a bit darker than the way you see it on your screen. So, you will notice that each image starts with a slight brightening, with the other corrections and enhancements to follow as needed.
