Black  Point   Pricing

A common question about photography is, "What am I paying for when I hire a photographer?" It is not just for the time spent taking the pictures, which is often only 30-60 minutes. That is the easy and the fun part! The real work comes in the work done after the session: the editing & retouching.

In this time, the photographer takes the time to look at an image and determine what it needs to maximize it. Some editing can be VERY meticulous ("photoshopping" and altering images to make them flawless), while others are just tune ups to make the picture really pop.

Most of us know what it feels like to have our picture taken on a day that we just so happened to get a huge zit or scratched our face (lucky you, if you haven't). Retouching an image can take care of this In addition, though, to make a picture really stand out, an editor will balance the lighting, color, and clarity of an image. This is what can set a great photo apart from an average one. Here is a "Before & After" example below to get an idea the difference editing can make. 

EXAMPLE A: Minor Skin "Repair"

Removed cut on chin, removed pen mark on cheek.

EXAMPLE B: Overall Image Balance & Boost

EXAMPLE B: Brightened picture, increased warmth, lifted shadows, increased clarity. This gives more of a sunset glow versus an afternoon sun blast on face (when lighting isn't as optimal).
