SOOC #18

I get asked about the sun flares in my photos a fair bit, so I figured I would do a SOOC (straight out of camera) post showing what was captured in camera and what was added or emphasized in Photoshop. This is a shot from Emma + Gennaro‘s bridal session last October that I absolutely LOVE.

SOOC #15

This week’s SOOC feature is a photo I took back in July of my adorable nephew Jackson.


The before is on the left and after on the right.
I haven’t done too much to the original photo, just enhanced the light and contrast of the photo and sharpened it a wee bit.
This is a pretty typical edit for me, in fact it is what I do to most of my clients’ photos.

SOOC #14

This week’s SOOC comes from the Sarsaparilla Trail, part of Ottawa’s Greenbelt.


The before is on the left and the after on the right.
As you can see, I mostly just ran it through Photoshop to increase the sharpness of the photo but I did also adjust the lighting slightly. Mostly just to reduce the blue tones that were present due to the shady woods.
