In the first close up with the black arrow you can see the the shot is a very low resolution. Removing a lot of the digitization in the photo will help to smooth it out and make it a clearer crisper photo. Can this be done? YES! The next arrow photo after the first shows how a lot of the digitization was removed and the digitized skin tones have been smoothed out as well. I am not going to go into how I actually did this because that is not the point. We are talking about turning good photos into great photos remember? The third photo with the black arrow shows the bridesmaids being removed. Off with her head!
We are now left with the photo with the bridesmaids removed. There was some additional altering done here because we needed to adjust the coloration of the veil to remove the blue dress from behind it as well as replace walls under the Bridesmaids legs in the background and a little teeth whitening. Then the final touch; a color correction to remove the grey overcast from the photo bringing back the original sunny day and the whiteness of the brides dress.
Now we don't have just a good photo anymore but a great photo of just the bride and groom and suitable to frame now don't you think? Below we have the before and after final photos for closer inspection. You can see how there is now more detail in the photo on the right. The definition in the pocking of the rocks down to the individual blades of grass can be seen better. The expressions in the wedding couples faces are more enhanced and that is the most important part.
This editing can be done to almost any photo including vintage photos. The best part is that though they are fun to do, its' even more fun making someone happy. Have any photos you would like to get retouched? Or a family ex that needs to be removed from a photo? Though it may be sad it happens and why not try to save a "good" photo and make it GREAT. All of this is possible. If you would like to have this done just contact me through the contact page. We are happy to help.
