After the Photoshoot: What to Expect Next!
Once your photoshoot is complete, Client-purchased images go through a full, hand-edited process to take them from RAW camera file, to Lightroom early edits, to finished and fine-tuned Photoshop product ready for printing and displaying! Below is a summary of the process, as well as editing techniques you can request for your photos.
RAW images are straight out of the camera and are a "blank slate". They lack color and clarity as they have not been processed. I will spend several hours culling through the RAW images to find the very best ones to begin the initial edits on!
After culling, the RAW images are given their first edits via Lightroom. The colors are brought out and the image begins to take shape. After this stage, you will be shown the top images in a watermarked gallery, where you can make specific editing requests.
*Reminder that per the contract, images are not available to buy or have at this stage, and proofs may not be screenshot in any way
