Don't Insult the Photographer
Just a little FYI, it is very irritating to a photographer when you say their photos look good because of Photoshop. Really? No, my photos look good because I have spent thousands of dollars on training. I work very hard to make sure I know how to make my clients look the best they can be! Also, I have professional mentors who critique my work and tell me all the things I do wrong, and I continually grow through them. I also have some very nice equipment that I have worked very hard, and spent lots of $$$ to obtain. My photos are beautiful because I know how to bring beautiful out of my clients. I know how to use light to my client's advantage. And as those who have spent a few hours in my photo sessions will tell you, my sessions are a real workout. My standard saying is if you don't need a trip to the chiropractor after a photo session than your photographer hasn't really done their job. Do I touch up photos? Of course I do. Every single one. Whether it is a 7 year old or a 70 year old, we all have a few things that need to come out. I pride myself on not overdoing my editing. My portraits are good because most of my clients do hair and makeup before the shoot, are not rushed, are having a blast, and being told exactly how to turn, move, etc. So for the people who think that all great photos are fake photos...you are mistaken! Any and all clients are perfectly able to take a wonderful photograph!
