So you've just uploaded your photos from your recent photo shoot of an adorable family or wedding. Then you start to cull to end up with the amount you want to share with your client. Except, a few of the final amazing images have something that gives you that OCD feeling that you maybe didn't know you had? Nod if any of these sound familiar. There's the little girl's hair covering her eye! Some strange person got in the frame with a loud colored top on! You can't help having your eye draw to him. The sky had no clouds whatsoever but the moment was spectacular. But, no clouds! This bride's photo is perfect except for her unmentionable is peeking through just enough to drive you crazy! Daughter was so clingy to mommy and the only photo that could work for a solo shot has mommy's hand in the frame. Ugh! These are just a few possible scenarios. Actually, a lot of these happened to me! It's a good thing I happen to dapper in Photo Retouching for over 20 years. If you can relate to any of these scenarios, and you don't want to scrap great photos before presentation, then read more on why you NEED a photo retoucher in your life.

You're here because you are enjoying your DSLR or digital camera and taking photos of your family but perhaps when you look at your photos something seems off. For instance, you're surprised at how your double chin is protruding. In fact, where did it come from? Your husband's form may seem more pudgy than how you usually see him, or you're not sure how to pose your family during the family reunion.
Maybe you're new to photography and would like some help. I am here to help. Today's topic is about POSING....
You're here because you are enjoying your DSLR camera and taking photos of your family but perhaps when you look at your photos something seems off. For instance, there may be too many shadows, you don't know how to position yourself in relation to the sun, or you may be missing on important details that you'd love to cherish decades later. Maybe you're new to photography and would like some help. The trick to making a great magically enhanced photo art is to start with good and eye candy photography.
Then there are the fun projects of putting together a photo album, a wall of photos or collage. What should be included?
Today's topic is about DETAILS....
My philosophy is that photography should lighten up the heart and the eyes with vibrant color, light and majesty as memories flood back into the mind and soul. No cringing allowed. Only magic!
