Manipulation: It's not always a bad thing

Photo Edits

Sometimes it's a necessary evil

Does your photo need more bite? Was your photoshoot held in a less than ideal location? If so I can help.

PROBLEM: The photo location was too dark and the imperfections of the ceiling paint were a distraction. With only 30 min to shoot, the subject was not able to move any of the cars without losing time. The client also requested an opening spread that was dramatic, dark, and minimal. 

SOLUTION:  Without moving the cars, I light-painted the photo, removed all distractions to mimic the cars being parked in a night club and created a lion in the smoke layer (look carefully at the right side of the image in the smoke)- an appropriate touch since this place is called “The Lion’s Den.”

PROBLEM: The ’60 Impala we were set to shoot got a flat. By the time they changed it we were running out of light so we shot the photos on site. The client also requested that we remove all the trash and the graffiti in the background to give it a more elegant look. 

SOLUTION: We shot a new background and layered it in seamlessly. If you look through the windows of the car every detail has been put back in. To keep the tone consistent we applied the same treatment to all photos in the feature.
