Photo Retouching

Editing blemishes, wrinkles, red eye, changing colours, removing distractions, etc.

IMAGE BRIGHTENING (RECOVERING LIGHT & DETAIL)

While recovering every element isn’t always guaranteed, there are best practices to take when capturing your images. Shooting your photos in RAW will retain data and can bring back more detail through editing than you initially see in the original photo.

BEST ANGLES FOR ALL

It can be hard to coordinate your poses with one another when you are taking a photo. Especially when surrounded by distractions or in group shots where one person blinks, one yawns, one is looking away, etc.

That’s why in times like these, you should try and take as many options where everyone looks good in at least one of them. Then, leave it up to me to morph them together!

REMOVAL OR COLOUR CHANGE

It’s usually not until you’re home and looking through the photos that you take that you notice something in the frame you wish wasn’t there (ex. bra strap showing, broccoli in teeth, hair tie on wrist… the list goes on). With photo retouching we can remove unwanted or distracting items.

Secondly, have you ever wanted to change the colours of part of a photo? Maybe you want to have it match your Instagram theme, you want to switch the colour of your shirt so it doesn’t look like you’ve been wearing the same one multiple days in a row? Photo retouching can make these wishes come true.
