Creating artistic portraiture by means of digital imaging can be an extensive process, and quite often defines the line between ‘professional & shutter-bug‘.
When I first opened up the studio I was shooting weddings entirely on film. 36 shots a roll. No photoshop. No second chances. . . No pressure!
Understanding old-school exposure & basic composition when pulling the trigger is an essential skill in this profession. But in this new digital era of photography; that initial click is merely a fraction of the masterpiece that is being created. In fact, for every one hour I spend on the field I anticipate 2-3 hours in post-production.
I hope you enjoy this little behind-the-scenes peek into my own little digital darkroom!
