know what you are getting
One of the most important things you can do before you hire your wedding photographer is to ask about his post production experience. What are you looking for? If you don’t know, make sure you ask lots of questions when you review portfolios. What comes with your package? Make sure you know before you sign your contract.
When shooting candids the intent is to capture the fleeting moment – which means you sometimes get the wall outlet and power chord in your shot too. At Firstlight Photography all of our images receive the basic color and exposure corrections but we also do a lot of other editing you might not notice (which means we have done our job). Aside from aesthetic changes, see if you can find the missing objects in the AFTER image. In addition to “erasing” several objects, the post production work involved a layering, vignette and other techniques that we like to experiment with for that perfect album photo or canvas print.
