Snapshot to Formal

Discussion in 'Formal Portraits and Weddings' started by Uncle Frank, Aug 22, 2008.

  1. Tina is a client for product photography... her Eiko Jewelry line.

    She's camera shy, and tenses up on the rare occasions when I can get her to pose. But I manage to catch a decent snapshot every once in a while.

    After I edited it, I reflected on the difference between a snapshot and a portrait. It's mostly in the amount of work put into the picture... but it can be before (careful posing and lighting) or after (Photoshop).

  2. Nice Frank! I like seeing the before/after. Amazing what a crop (and removal from dead center) does for a photo! Also love your BnW conversion (I've been really into BW lately). :smile:
