Today I wanted to share with you an example of my work manaement and mainly what I can edit in Photoshop.

Often clients don't think there is much to edit and all you need is a good camera. Well, the reality is, the camera itself won't take great photos, with a preparation for the photo session there are many more steps that follow.. In my case, it is years of experience, education and use of different equipment and techniques that help me create my images (e.g. lighting, reflectors, make-up fix, backdrops, props, styling and posing). When I export the RAW files onto my PC, I first go through all images taken (always more than 100 photos for each photo session) and I delete unusable images (blurred, not sharp, the person closed their eyes, unflattering poses etc.).

Once all the above is done, I apply first edit TO ALL remaining images (this includes colour management, enhacements, sharpening, cropping etc.). I then export pre-edited images and share an online gallery with a client. They will choose their final images based on their chosen photo package but also have an option to purchase additional photographs.

When I receive the finalised order I apply the final edit (see the animation below). You would think what do I need to edit on a child's portrait? I fix the hair (hanging around or in the face), make the perfect hair bun, "slim"down the shoes to fit the ballerina's feet and I also adjust the colours, lights and shadows plus sharpen the photo. I export all photos in high res (ready to print particular size) and low resolution quality suitable for sharing online (these inlude my watermark). If you wanted to see a GIF where the edits are played as before and after please head to my FACEBOOK page or INSTAGRAM profile.

So this is what I do when I create my photos that I love sharing with you all 🥰

Book a photo session NOW Coming-soon-websComing-soon-webs

Hi everyone,

hope you are all keeping safe and healthy during this world pandemic.
Just a heads up, we are open and you can book a photo-shoot with us.
We have, however, implemented few new measurements in order to keep us and our customers safe.
We do practice social distancing during our photo sessions and we also shoot outdoors for all photo session except for newborn and corporate head-shots where again strict social distancing is applied. No other photo sessions are available in our studio at this moment.
Also, if you are unwell, you can postpone your photo session for FREE until you and your family are well.
We ask everyone who is unwell even with even mild symptoms to inform us immediately and postpone their photo sessions. The same would be applied if any of our staff was unwell.

We are looking forward to capturing memories for you in 2020.
Gina D Photo team
