Welcome to my blog where I share stories from my photo shoots, tips, and other photography related topics that I find interesting. While I specialize in outdoor and on-location portrait photography, this blog will be about all things creative that I admire and learn from on a day to day basis.
Making your images stand out from the average shots and invoke an emotion in eyes of the viewer is the ultimate aim that I set for in the post processing session. Normally, you would see these type of images in magazines or wedding concepts but I see no reason why these techniques cannot be tried on portraits.
Here are five different looks of the same image each conveying something different...
Here is the original image :
Here are some variations on that image
1) Black and White : This is a classic step. Couples love it. It adds that nostalgic feel to any image especially portraits. From unlimited ways in which black and white can be presented, I have developed two samples for you. First, is a high contrast image that gives a rustic feel and second is a softened image giving a more classical feel to it
2) Sepia Tone : I personally love what sepia tone can do to your images. It adds a richness to the image. I especially love to try out few sepia combinations in addition to the black and whites
3) Toned down : Here I try to get the image to look like it has been washed out. The muted colors invoke a different kind of experience filled with nostalgia
