Last Fall, I did his senior session, buuuut never got around to posting a preview of it because blogging just takes up too much time. Time that could be spent shooting, traveling, hiking, biking, hanging out with friends and family ... you name it. Needless to say, I love being a photographer, but blogging? Not so much. :) Here are a few shots we did for his modeling portfolio. Such a great-looking kid!
I really enjoyed this fun, easy-going session from this Fall.
This is my favorite time of year to photograph!
I've wanted to illustrate this point before, but I've never taken the time to do it until now. Oftentimes, people don't realize the impact that editing has on an image unless they see the before and the after together. The image on the left was SOOC (a.k.a. straight out of camera). The image on the right has been edited for exposure, tint, color balance, contrast, highlights, facial retouching, as well as, sharpening. Obviously, there is a significant difference between the impact of the two images.
As your photographer, I spend a great deal of time making sure that your final images are beautifully edited. My goal is to create natural, pleasing and well-balanced images that don't look "overly photoshopped". It's important to me that they have a timeless, natural feel to them. Hopefully, this helps you see some of the 'behind the scenes' work that takes place before you receive your finished collection of images. It's the most time-consuming part of my job and I take a great deal of pride in delivering this style of images to you!
Graduation is right around the corner and I'm gearing up for the new high school senior season so I thought it would be a good idea to get caught up a *little bit* on posting some of my 2015 grads. It was a fun season to photograph because many of the seniors that I photographed I had known for many years, and Mary was no exception. I loved being a part of this special occasion for her and she made my job so easy with that incredible smile!
