What do You mean by Edited Photos

Edited Photos

As I am sitting here at my desk, doing what I do each day, I thought I would share a “Before and After” so you see what happens with your Edited Photos.

I use the RAW setting on my camera to allow me to deliver edited photos.  RAW captures all image data recorded by the sensor. I do not use JPEG format to capture your image.   JPEG is a great feature but, it automatically adjusts the images and then compresses them.  If I use this setting I would lose the ability to make drastic changes and lose some image quality. With RAW I am able to produce a higher quality image and have the ability to recover and correct my image in post. This is one of the reasons why I don’t do a gallery or let you choose your photos to be edited. As you can see, it is hard to tell much about your photo, until I start the editing process. The horizon will be straightened, and all unwanted distractions will be removed.  There will be no other people on the beach, other than the ones in your party.  What about signs, trash cans, and litter?  All gone!  Now that we have corrected the background, let’s focus on what is really important, YOU!

Thank you all for your patience in waiting for your photos. 

I am all up in your face, making small and large adjustments. Let’s face it, we could all use some teeth whitening. How about an added sparkle to your eyes?  Just a touch of blue, green or gold in your brown eyes can make you look your best.  Do you have smile lines, or crow’s feet when you smile?  I can minimize or make them disappear completely.  What about blemishes?  I have removed as many as possible leaving you looking natural but improved!  Your face was completely clear that day, haha.  Your make-up was on point and perfect as far as anyone knows.  Now here is where it gets tricky.  I know you want to know about removing 20 lbs, right?  Well, let me tell you about my magical lens.  I usually use a portrait lens.  It has an automatic compression feature.  During your final edits, I can slightly stretch your photo also.  I keep it between 8-15% to keep it looking natural.  Too much stretching can make you look “long in the face”. 


There you have it.  

A little explanation of the editing process that each of your photos will go through.  So don’t worry.  Even if your teenager is broken out from the sunscreen, or your toddler has a goose-egg on his forehead.  I have got you covered and corrected!  Thank you for trusting Beach Shutters to take and deliver your edited photos!
