Color correction professional help
So, while choosing a person to perform your alterations, make sure, you can trust him. Perhaps, he or she has some diplomas, rewards, after all, you can always google responses and commentaries to this person’s work. It is also a good sign if he or she can do more, than you need. For example, you send this person your photos, he culls them, corrects the light and everything, crops it, to slightly change the angle of view, but you understand, that this is actually a close up and you want to ask him for portrait retouching service too. This is only natural, that you remembered something after the work is done or in the process, this happens to the most of the editors’ clients and they are ready. Well, if they are not, this is a bad sign. Choose someone who’s work examples amaze you and tell this person everything you want to change on the picture.
Photographers color service and small secret
Photo shooters are people. People make mistakes. They can feel not well or simply be tired and then they do not even notice how the angle is bad, the white balance is wrong, and the lightning is far from great. Some unbeautiful expression on the model’s face, unfortunate timing of blinking, some unrespectful bug – these are some of the possible causes of the mistakes a shooter can make any time. It is no secret that photo shooters often prefer to make better shots in order to skip the correction part later, but sadly, not every shooter is able to make photos on such a high level and of course not every photographers equipment is as modern as you would like too. Photographers color service is what helps shooters improve their shots and give it to their customers flawless and outstanding. Humans’ facial expression cannot be constant, it changes all the time, people move. All sudden movement can either make the shot more alive, or spoil it, which happens much more often. If you blink or move slightly your head, the mood of the picture will be changed. Of course you are not obliged to turn to the editing company if you are ready to spend your time, at least several hours, trying to apply color correction services yourself. Think carefully. Are you ready to dedicate yourself to some photo shooting post production, probably not knowing all the details and techniques, when there are specialists who are ready to help you and to change your photo style, make it modern or antique, make you thinner or change your hair color, give the picture some shining and glamour, or make it darkly gothic? Why waste your time and efforts? Photographers think this way and they are absolutely right! While we are editing their photo, they have more time, inspiration, ideas for the shooting process and eventually, they get more money, than they spend this way. So photographers color service is of course not a must, especially if you are shooter, who is skilled in editing and like doing it, but they are really hard to find and you should at least consider turning to the wedding retouching company.
Professional photo color correction advantages
We perceive pictures on the different levels. There are visual level, when we simply value the skill of the photographer and this editor combined, but not professionally, some simple liking or nor liking the work, association level, when we are trying to seize the idea of the photo and have some thoughts about it, technical level, when we can find photo shooter’s and\or retoucher’s mistakes and some drawbacks, perhaps, style level, when we can find some mismatch of the model’s clothes or make up to the style of the shot’s post editing, when the place where the shooting took place cannot fully tell the idea, and so on. After culling five hundred photos in several shootings, professionals know for sure, that between thirty shots of the same scene, one can often find no good one in them. It hurts sometimes, if the model or the shooter put their hopes into this particular shot, but it happens. Our workers will do their job quickly and good, because they train not to lose their focus after the hundreds of the similar shots. And then there is a need to show a client our skills in all imaginable forms and we do it, because we understand your needs and your heart, and we want only to do good. If you need some post production in time and for moderate prices, turn to the people with experience, who will understand your expectation and give you exactly what you want.
Color correction companies that you can find and their color correction service
Of course, when you google such companies, you find out, that there are hundreds of them. But as you take a closer look you find out that only half of them does their job properly and some of them do not even have examples of their work on their sites. Many of them literally have zero reviews and you start to feel disappointed. This happens to everyone who enters the sphere of photography as an interested person. You feel suspicious and you know you would not give a penny to this companies before seen your shots post edited properly first, and this is right. But there are naïve people who believed them and gave them their money! Of course it is hard for them to understand what they did. Do not repeat their mistakes and always check the company you want to trust before sending them either money or your photo shooting’s result, i.e. your photographs. Trust only people with reviews and commentaries, with contracts and guarantees. The best situation would be when your friend recommends it to you after altering his or her pictures there, because then you can be sure about everything: prices, quality of the job, money, guarantees, and, the last but not the least, that your nerves will not suffer.
Why do photo editing color correction and some details about it
Of course there is a chance that you will think that such enhancement is very easy to apply and that you can do it yourself. After all, there are many lessons on color correction available online as well as in the manual books, that you can buy, but they often only describe the principles of image processing. Before you can begin working with pictures, you need to understand what color correction is and why it is used. Color correction – is a process of replacement for the original component color, hue, tone, and saturation of the image. It is used for several reasons. To start with, it often happens that we see the real colors totally different on the picture. This happens due to the incorrect camera settings, poor quality of imaging equipment and specific lighting. Our cameras are usually not able to adapt to the lighting in the same way as the human eye. This causes errors in the image reflection. Secondly, there are color defects. These include the possible light striking of a snapshot, excessive darkness, haze or dullness of tones and colors. And finally, of course there is place for creative experiments. Color correction allows you to reflect the intentions of the photographer. Photographers add fairy tales’ elements or brutality, they make photographs more expressive or dull. Every effect depends on the intent of the photo shooter.
Color correction is most often done with the help of famous programs, such as Photoshop, Lightroom, and other similar ones. Photoshop is known for decomposition of the image to the different channels. There are several modes for image editing. The most popular one is RGB, which means red, green, and blue. Then comes CMYK, which stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, & black. In this mode white is used in the channels to show the maximum presence of the chosen color, so black, on the contrary, shows its minimum. For example, if the blue channel is filled completely with black, it means, that blue is missing on this picture.
Correction of the color is important for making photos, enhancing them, for filming some clips and films, for preparing photographs to be printed. When you hear about this type of editing you probably imagine only bright colors, but this is a mistake! If you want your picture in black and white, it still needs professional photo color correction, because working with high end black and white pictures means working with the bright colors first! Colorful digital photography is firmly stable in our lives. Manufacturers of photo printers proudly promise 100 years of persistent storage of printed pictures (and who has time to check and argue if this turn out to be wrong?). It would seem that with the technology improvement shooters will look for the new tools and possibilities, but millions of photographers return again and again to black and white photography along with the army of the black, gray, and white selfies. The universality of such photos is captivating both professionals and beginners. This is a unique genre of photography where you can feel texture, form, lines, and composition of a shot so deeply. And here is a choice for every photo shooter: is it better to capture images in the special black and white mode, that you can find in all modern cameras, or one should better wait for the post editing in some program to make the color change?
This problem is not new to the photography art. Long before the advent of the digital cameras, a similar problem was faced by the operators of the scanners during the preparation of the materials for black and white printing. History repeats itself, but few remember this. Indirectly, methods of solving the problem were found during the rich practice of processing images with curves, because it has inspired many famous authors experimenting with the color channels. Making contrast and improving the bright colors helps achieve deep and beautiful results in the process of the transfer of the colors to white, black, and gray tones in the Photoshop. Though our team usually uses Capture and Lightroom, because they allow both mild and strong image altering and therefore, many variants of the beautiful result. Professional editors are used to working with the whole set simultaneously, because Lightroom lets people do their job without the previous upload of the pictures. This program demands less memory space, than others, so it also allows more productive work to be done without the time waste.
Color correction services in wedding photography
We can divide the whole process of picture enhancing into three main steps, such as basic post processing, retouching, then color correction professional applies along with other effects if needed. The main processing involves some measures applied to remedy the basic shot drawbacks: like cropping the photo, horizon line correction, lens distortion, lens color aberration correcting process, the alignment of all the light and shadow, making the image sharper, correcting of white balance. Retouching is mostly removing or adding different elements to the picture. In wedding sphere we can retouch people on the images (i.e. face, hair, make-up etc.) and adjust their surroundings. Color correction means giving of artistry because of the colour range and palette changing. It demands understanding the various color combinations, which of them match one another, and which do not. You can find many variants of tone correction: shading, individual variation of some chosen colors, adjusting the saturation, and so on. Smart color correction is as a rule a creative combination of all of the above. There are also special effects – making a picture more interesting by adding different textures, blur; the usage of detalization (the process of artificial underscoring the outstanding details, while the objects begin to acquire additional volume) and liquify (a complex process to make the objects more attractive by changing their geometry), the usage of artificial vignetting.
Five easy steps to create order:
From all said above it is evident that high-quality processing of all the photographs of one wedding is a very long process (depending on many it can take a person from 5 minutes up to several hours). The approximate number of shots taken on an average wedding composes about 500 shots. That is, if we take for at least 5 minutes for 500 shots this will consume at least 41.6 hours of work without a break (if the retoucher does not eat, sleep and never tires even for a second). Therefore, all those wedding photographers who say that they edit absolutely all wedding photos are likely to lie, and if this is not a lie, then their treatment is of quite a bad quality (there is no individual approach; all of the processes are applied in auto modes). Wedding photographers usually post process a small amount of shots but the artistry of their creations might just overwhelm you. Not only that, the wedding pictures have to carry a deep story meaning, they are perfected to the smallest detail. Shooters apply unique colors and complex combinations of graphical effects. So if you call yourself a photographer, your work must match the declared title and it is after all much easier to turn to the editing studio.
