Photographic retouching examples

Before

After

Studio shot of a performer required background modification.

Given the lighting of the subject – coming from behind and above with shadows cast forward, the subject was isolated from the background and a selection of images including stage floor, mist/smoke, and lighting were used to create a more interesting ‘in-situ’

Special event shot requiring optimisation

This photo taken at a country wedding required several optimistations including the removal of the person in the background, the electrical leads and clutter in the foreground, the guest’s undergarment straps removed and an old world filter to give the image poiniancy.

Before

After

Studio shot of a performer required background modification.

Given the lighting of the subject – coming from behind and above with shadows cast forward, the subject was isolated from the background and a more country music relevant background introduced to give more meaning to the subject. The chosen background with the setting sun was introduced to enhance the back lit glow of the subject’s hair, arms and hat.

Before

After

Studio shots of two performers need to be combined and repositioned to interact with the section's masthead

Images of two performers were isolated from their studio shot background and combined with the wistful huge moon and fairy dust sparkles to create a promotional cover. The image was arranged to introduce a level of interaction with the section’s masthead.
