Post Production Work

(With Photo Examples Below)

From the moment we meet a potential client, photography and artwork has already started for us because, as we listen to the client-to-be and hear about their event, their needs and desires, and learn about their style and how they want us to work with them, we start to frame photos in our minds, imagine the event and how it may unfold, etc.  But this is only the beginning with much more to come, even after the event.

Post Production Work is the time when we:

 

  1. Review each photo that was taken for you

  2. Select prime photos from the collection

  3. From the prime, a collage of photos is put together that tells the complete story of your event

  4. From the prime, we also identify:

    • Great photos that might have very sentimental meaning to you, or they may be photos that are regarded as more intimate or personal photos (kissing, couples looking into each other's eyes, etc.)

    • Bloopers or funny photos, which we believe may also have special sentimental meaning to you and yours

  5. These groups of prime photos are then individually reviewed using artwork and graphic design software to make any adjustments we feel may be necessary to things like:​

    • Color​

    • Lighting

    • Imperfections or Minor Corrections

  6. Additional work will be performed on some of the photos in these groups of prime photos such as:​

    • Generating photos in black and white, sephia and other color styles and combinations (such as photos with black and white, and color, in the same photo)​

    • Other artwork enhancements such as borders, styles, text, effects, adjustments, transformations, etc.

Below you'll find a few examples of "before and after" photos.  The "before" photo is the photo as it was taken, and the "after" photo is the photo after our post production work was completed, which may have involved applying any number of the ideas listed in #5 and #6 above.  Because of the vast number of ideas that can be applied to a photo, sometimes the "after" photo becomes sort of a "different" photo than the original one, since the pose, setting, etc., of the photo bring forth from the mind of the photographer or artist a number of ideas that might have not been seen or thought of at the time the photo was taken.  Lots of fun and opportunities!

Adjusting colors, hues, saturation, crop, size, highlights and shadows is a common part of post production work.  Many different aspects of the photo are reviewed and taken into consideration.

Keeping a section of a photo in color and changing others to black and white gives a photo a special effect, style or character that is unique.

Some photos, as in the case of this couple at the altar, involve cropping or resizing the photo, in order to maximize the pose or setting due to the circumstances or location from where the photo had to be taken and/or the surroundings of the main subjects.

In addition to working with the tones in order to bring out the highlights and details, adding effects such as a blur to this photo allows for the subjects to be emphasized even more, and this emphasis enhances the fact that the subjects already bring a different perspective to the photo, since they are not focused on the camera but rather elsewhere, bringing the "reality" effect of this photo to a greater level.

Black and white, in addition to other slight modifications to this photo, give it a certain sense of life and romance that at times, not even color photos can bring through as powerfully.

Giving a photo a twist by combining the palettes of black and white, and color, gives it a special effect, one that can give the impression of a varying timeline with the photo - the old and the new.  In this scene, the couple is standing in front of a glass window that portrays their image.  We turned the portion of the photo with the couple in it to black and white, and left the window reflection of the couple in color.
