Looks Can Be Deceiving

This morning I was going over photos from a recent family shoot with some clients of mine. I started out going through my workflow in Adobe Lightroom (as always) and took off one toolbar as I wasn’t using it. I always like to work with just what I need, to give me a better view of the photos I’m working with. I then preceded to take off the the other three toolbars, and it gave me a totally different perspective of the photo.

I’ve done this before, but this one gave me a different perception than the others did. This is a good example of how my photos would look if they were to be blown up into a large, framed picture, canvas, panorama, etc. All of my photos I take with clients on shot on RAW, which enables me to do this with any photo my clients wish, even after being edited to their desire.

As a photographer, I feel it’s always import to get a different perspective. That being said, I feel that getting a perspective from someone else is equally as important as toggling between a different view mode.

Worst feedback on photos to get: Your photos look good! (What does that mean??)

Best feedback on photos to get: Your photos lack diversity in genre. Also, the skies look fake because the saturation levels are boosted too much. (THANK YOU for you honesty!!) 🙂

I also have some of my media work on NoCo Lifestyle. If you or someone you know is thinking about relocation in the Northern Colorado area, that’s the place to visit.
