Let's talk about your before and after needs concerning post editing. Our goal is to keep people looking natural while utilizing Photoshop and Lightroom for optimal results: No matter how talented and knowledgeable a photographer is, there are things that can be done in post editing that cannot be accomplished in camera even by the most experienced veteran photographer.
This is what is included in our basic editing for headshots:
1) Stray Hairs
3) Softening of Facial, Eye, Forehead and Neck Lines
4) Minimal Clothing Wrinkles On Solid Colors Only ( NO patterns / stripes )
5) Facial Shine
6) Glasses Glare
7) Teeth Whitening
8) Color Correction
9) Exposure Correction
There are also other areas that fall under basic editing: Just Ask!
NOTE: Not all post editing is the same. It's amazing how many photographers use a program named Portrait Pro ( Portrait Professional ) for their post editing. In our case, we don't just drop an image in a program like this and press a couple of buttons. Our approach to post editing is more customized which is why we use Photoshop and Lightroom for our post editing work.
*A few basic and extensive editing samples are below, but our team has worked with thousands of digital images.
A few examples of POTENTIAL “Extensive editing” ( NOT an all inclusive list ) are…
…Change color of clothing
…Take off 10 years, 10-20 lbs, etc.
…Head swap, Eye swap, Mouth swap, etc.
…Major Glasses Glare That Requires Eye Swapping
…Removing Double Chin
…Changing to a different background
