There's always something about an image that has been professionally edited rather than a phone APP that does it for you. How? You may ask? Well, for those who have no experience in editing images one would simply choose a preset filter and the APP would drastically change the colors to a particular look. Now I do like some of those filters and how they make the photo look like it's been taken back in the 80's or older. .....
But my baby wasn't photographed in the 80's? And a lot of those filters make my precious images real bizarre and ugly.
Do they do the same to yours? I personally like keeping the natural look and maybe with a hint of a magic color tint, which is a hint of blush in certain images.
Professional editing is your life saver. I can do ANYTHING. Or Just about. ;-) Take my baby girl's photo above for instance. This photo was taken using my cell phone. Because of the green blanket the camera adjusted the image to give her a green skin. Yuck! So I took this photo into my pro software and gave her skin her more natural colors. Then I removed some eye boogers and brought some detail back in her eyes. Gorgeous! Don't you think?
This photo is now WORTHY to be printed and hung on my wall. Is yours?
I could, and probably will, take it a step further and remove the pacifier by her arm. I could even remove the "action blur" of her moving arm too. And even straighten up the blanket above her head. I'm awesome like that. Just saying. ;-)
So, with that said, what photos that you have taken with your cell phone would you LOVE to have printed?
Need help picking the right one to hang on your wall?
Shoot me a message NOW (to firstname.lastname@example.org) and let's discuss this project! It'll be fun I guarantee it.
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!
