Not having an outstanding wedding photography portfolio could be the make or break for any photographer. Business is hard in today’s economic climate and every job counts, losing one job mid wedding season, could easily put a wedding photographer out of business. It is imperative therefore for the wedding photographer to have a first class portfolio.
To ensure that you have a first class wedding portfolio there are two things you can do. The first is by taking good photos. It goes without saying that every photographer will try their best to take the best possible photos for their clients, it is in their interests to do so and it’s their job. The second is to ensure that these pictures go one better than the other wedding photographers out there. How? The answer is to have the images retouched by a wedding retoucher.
Wedding photo retouching is not new but few use the service as many prefer to do retouch their photos themselves. The problem with this is the wedding photographer must devote much of his time to learning the techniques, when he needs to be concentrating photo retouching services on finding new business. In the unlikely event that finding new business is not needed the wedding retouching should be left to a professional who has developed their skills over time. The photo retoucher can structure the work to produce the shots that ‘wow’ the clients and gain their business and trust.
The wedding photo retoucher can improve your photos by removing fly away hair or stray confetti. People can be removed from the foreground or back ground. New compositions can be made from two or more photos to form new photos. This can save the embarrassment to the photographer should he forget to take an important group photo, two or more photos can be merged to make a wedding group with all the right people standing together.
Further techniques used to improve wedding photos are smoothing creases in clothes and removing unwanted shadows. For the close up portraits of the bride and groom a magazine make over or studio style background could be added. With your imagination and communication with the wedding photo retoucher, anything is possible.
