Post production in terms of editing is a crucial part of photography, some people think to edit your pictures after they’ve been taken takes away from the reality and rawness of the image. Although this may be true in some aspects I think that post production allows you to salvage a shot that just doesn’t embody the vision you had for it.

You have the ability to save a poorly exposed or composed shot and just as a perk you can have all your photos in a portfolio or on your Instagram/Tumblr feed kind of follow an overall toned theme. I’ll post some photos below from before and after they’ve been messed around in through photoshop 6 (raw on left and edited PNG on the right)

My editing is still very basic, let me know your thoughts.

  1. Even though I don’t know everything there is to editing what you have done with photos I really liked. The general effect from the editing has made a more chaotic photo (too hard to focus on and less detail) into one where it is more pleasing to the eyes, consequently more detail.

    keep up the work.
