My couple of the week post.
Sometimes I get asked the question how much photoshop I do to my shots but the truth is that I don’t do much and I really don’t know how to do much even if I tried. A few folks that have worked with me know what you see here is very identical to what you see in camera. I may do some white balance, contrast and sharpening but I don’t change backgrounds and do all sort of magical stuffs that you see out there these days, I always say I’m a photographer not a photoshopper! So it’s very important to me to get it right when I shoot. My last wedding someone asked, I like your street shots, do you photoshop the cars in the background? Honestly, I just love shooting on the streets, it’s more like a signature thing than anything else and of course there’s a safety process involved and some boldness from my couples.
The shots below of Shola and Taiwo are just a good example of straight out of camera images. I recognized the light and shot accordingly with no manipulation to the final images. I know you cant enough of Shola and Taiwo so I will be blogging their wedding as well next month.
