Before and After
The vast majority of images taken by photographers require re-touching. I use a mixture of techniques to create the style of images I produce. Some images take time to build up that style in layers, but with others, just very slight adjustments can make a huge difference.
Basic editing includes colour correction, adjustments to verticals, toning down highlights and extracting detail from shadows. Further editing can include light painting, selective colour saturation, removal of unwanted objects and other enhancements.
