Below are a few examples of some of the photo editing services I offer.

Please Contact me if you wish more information and pricing on providing you with one of these services.   Or if you wish to inquire about an additional type of photo editing service not shown below.

Each project is evaluated on the complexity of the photo editing required for pricing.  For example, simple photo edits that require only 1 hour of time - $15.00.



AIRBURSHING BEFORE


AIRBURSHING AFTER
 
 
 
Generally I do more subtle fixes of this nature.   This example was to illustrate the extent to which I can provide "airbrushing" to photos.
 
 


GROUP PHOTO BEFORE


GROUP PHOTO AFTER
 
 
 
To begin, each group situation will have to be evaluated to see if it is a candidate for creating the "perfect" group shot.   It will entail more than one photo of the same group and must be shot in the same setting, time of day, etc.


For this group photo I had to not only merge the best images of the people from the 2 separate photos above but also apply perspective fixes to the castle and add sky.


 


IN SHADOW BEFORE


IN SHADOW AFTER
 
 
 
Here I softened the shadows and also fixed the overall perspective on the cabin.



CLEANUP BEFORE


CLEANUP AFTER
 
 
 
In this photo I removed the electrical highwires, the wire fence, fixed the perspective and applied some overall "whitewashing" to the barn.



TOO DARK BEFORE


TOO DARK AFTER
 
 
 
The original, as you can see, was way too dark.



BACKGROUND REMOVAL BEFORE


BACKGROUND REMOVAL AFTER
 
 
 
Photo must be evaluated beforehand to determine if changing the background is feasible as well as for the time involved to accomplish the task.  Backgrounds can vary from blurred background, to adding color or a color gradient (see the  Portraiture page for more examples).



IMAGE CUTOFF BEFORE


IMAGE CUTOFF AFTER
 
 
 
In the original the tip of the birds wings were cut off at the top.   I also removed the extraneous birds in the lower lefthand corner.



BEFORE LIGHTING EFFECT


AFTER ADDITION OF LIGHTING EFFECT
 
 
 
Changed the exposure to give the time of day to dusk.  Added a light shining in the "window" of the ruin.



PEOPLE IN PHOTO BEFORE


AFTER PEOPLE REMOVED
 
 
 
Each photo has to be evaluated to determine see if this is possible.  When possible, I endeavor to remove all or most all of the people in a photo.   I also did overall cleanup and adjustments to the lighting.



OLD PHOTO RETOUCH BEFORE


OLD PHOTO RETOUCH AFTER
 
 
 
Each photo has to be evaluated to determine if it is a viable candidate for photo retouching.   When possible, I endeavor to clean the photo up and change to black and white unless you wish to leave it with a sepia tone.  

 
 
The retouching in this photo is somewhat subtle. Mainly it was too dark and the colors needed brightening. I also did some sharpening to the image.
