Anytime you see an image posted here on my blog or up on my website it been touched by Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop is an amazing tool when used properly. Many times I use it for something as simple as resizing, adding my website address, and doing a little sharpening to the image. Other times I use it to adjust the color & contrast of the image to make it look more accurate to real life. Most of the time when I am shooting I already have in mind what I want the final print to look like. Photoshop allows me to bring to life what I originally envisioned when taking the image. Photoshop can also be used to soften lines around the eyes, remove stray hairs, soften shiny foreheads, remove blemishes and distracting elements from images. These are the types of things I do when an image is ordered for your album or as a print through my online store.
Even though Photoshop is an amazing tool I still strive to get a near perfect image at the time of capture. Every minute I spend in Photoshop is one less minute I get with my family.
Below are a few examples of images straight out of the camera like my clients get on their DVDs or you see on my online store, roll your mouse over the image to see what spending a little time in Photoshop can do. If you are viewing this post on Google reader or some other feed please jump over to my blog so the rollover images will work.
