FAQ

General

Do you deliver every image you shoot?


No, I dont. Only the best of the best. I get rid of duplicate photos, test photos, out of the focus, photos with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. I wont put the presure on you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so I spend hours doing that on my end. I only deliver the best one.

Post Production

Do you touch up all the images?


Yes I do. Every image I deliver is post produced with my individual signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections.




What do you mean by “touching up” the photos?


“Touching up” in my studio is the same as my indicual (standard) post-production. See the question below for clarity.




What is the difference between advanced and custom; and why are there additional costs for a custom retouch?


Advanced post-production includes touch-ups such as removal of blemishes, removal of bags under eyes, removal of fly-away hairs, etc. Custom post production is anything that requires, custom work in Photoshop like removing entire objects from the scene, changing the size and shape of body parts or other objects in the shot, adding objects to a scene and other custom work. I charge hourly for the custom post-production as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project. Please contact me for a quote for custom post-production.

My venue is very dark. How does your studio handle these situations and can I see samples?


If the situation allows, I will set up additional lighting to ensure we get focused pictures. Some chapels do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on camera’s with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures.
