I've invited you, my readers, to send me photos that you have taken. It can be anything, from a photo of your family, to a photo you made while on vacation to Moab. The photo is one you have that you aren't quite satisfied with, or needs retouching you aren't able to do on your own, or maybe you just want to see what another photographer can do with it. This week, Holly sent me a photo she made while visiting the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson, KS.
I'm going to be posting a new series here on my blog where I showcase techniques or post processing sessions. This is meant to highlight where our value lies as professional photographers. So much goes into producing a professional photo that the client never sees – it's more than just pushing the shutter button. I believe that I possess an attention to detail, a set of skills and talents as well as the knowledge and experience to produce a photo that few others do. In this post, I'm going to show you what can go into what seems like a simple headshot that is as easy as snapping the photo with your iPhone.
