Portrait Photo Editing - Intro

People are crazy about photo editing.
Why?

Because they can simply make things that are not possible in the real world.
Creativity.
To create.
To make.
To take control over.

Well, it's not like I hate editing.
In fact I LOVE IT!
But only to a certain extent.

In my term, editing is only to:
  1. Improve overall exposure. Recover those highlights and shadows. Everyone does this.
  2. Remove distractions (over-bright stuffs in background, annoyingly bright-colored stuffs other than the main subject, etc.).
  3. Remove minor imperfections in the subject (glare and reflections mostly, skin smoothing, etc.).
  4. Color tone adjustment as extra spice.
Anyway though, it is all subjective. In the other photographer's/editor's eyes, they need a different kind of 'cooking' to suit their need and taste.
  • You'll need to have a super perfect clean and crispy clear image for stock photo or you'll risk yourself getting rejected by the ever strict judges.
  • You can have an entirely out of world color balance for art projects. Art is subjective so yes, anything is acceptable.
  • I hate this one but its the most popular human figure "refinement" abused by fashion photography.
  • nado nado.

 So, for a few posts up ahead, I'll share a few of my editing method that I have digested along the way.

Here's a teaser:
