Create your own look

May 14, 2010

{This shot from photographer Dave Hill }

Different photographers have different view points on photo editing.  Some don’t want to edit their photos much at all and some like to tinker with them to death.  Some photographers see it as a separate expertise that is farmed out to a retoucher to do while others like the photographer Dave Hill, whose photo I have shown above, develop their own unique look with their photo editing.  A lot of people on the web have started to refer to the above effect as the Dave Hill look.  It’s a contrasty, heavy saturated, and well lit photograph that almost seems comic book like.  So, editing itself can help brand you and if you like playing around with editing, it will at the very least give your photographs something a little different from the rest.
