Wedding enhancement

Enhancing your wedding photos.

If some of your wedding photos are not taken in the best of situations, you can change all that by simply adding depth of field or replacing the background creating some major impact.

Enhancing your wedding photos, deleting or changing objectsThis is the original photo. Not in the best surroundings and kinda looks cluttered and distracts you from the subjects. No bride in the world wants the view distracting how good she looks on the day. So what can you do with them, lets have a look:

It blurs out those distractions in the background so you can concentrate on what the event was really about. Bride and daughter now take centre stage and overall the composition looks much, much better.

It costs very little to do this and as long as you choose the right setting you’re on the way to Enhancing your wedding photos. Pick your subject and I will find the best photo with the correct lighting and nobody will ever know or see the stitch marks 🙂

An experiment

Photo manipulation

I took this photo deliberately to test my new software out and to use it for removing objects without adverse effects to the picture. If you look closely you will see that I have removed overhead cables, the gate and shadows that would give the game away.

Enhance and Manipulation

Skala, Kefalonia.

The photo here of a Police station in Skala, Kefalonia was a quick snap I took on holiday, you know the type, you look at it once or twice then delete it from your computer. However I decided to do my ‘forever practice’ techniques on it and was astonished at how much detail was hidden by the bleached effect. Considering how much I know about photography and photo restoration I was really surprised how details of the lane came out after just a little ‘burning in’, so much more tinkering was needed to satisfy my curiosity.
I replaced the sky as nothing I did could bring that back, removed the aerial which in truth was making the masking too time consuming. It started to look good so the next thing was to enhanced the colours and reduced the size of the Police sign as it looked far too large and obtrusive.
If you have any holiday photos that you thought were a great subject but have ended up with a disappointingly washed out mess, don’t assume they are lost. Send them over to me and if it simply means a quick ‘burning’ process I would only charge £2.00 each as long as it’s a minimum order of 3 photos, that’s incredibly cheap.

Sinkhole in lounge

Sinkhole in lounge, oh my gawd.

The illusion Sinkhole in lounge below is quick and easy to do if you have the right pictures. Getting the lighting correct and coming from the same source point is exactly what you want if it has that believable ‘first glance’.
Dead funny when you ring your partner and send her the photo of your house with a hole in the floor. If you’re a good actor you can pull this off and laugh till she gets home and batters you, and she will batter you if she falls for it. Obviously the rug would have hung over the hole in case you noticed, but hey, this is for fun.

Sinkhole in lounge is not a disaster
