NIKO AND CAMILA

I met Camila by chance at the gym working out one day. I can’t tell you the specifics but we became fast friends. We worked out together when our schedules allowed it and she gave me great advice and knowledge of workout programs and nutrition. She is now studying to be a certified trainer and registered dietitian here in Las Vegas. Camila and I have a few things in common and one of them is we love our pets unconditionally.
Pet portraits are never easy don’t let these images fool you. Niko is just a year old here and a puppy with lots of energy. Camila was patient and we took all the time that was needed. Every detail was thought of. This session is a great example of “teamwork”. I think we did a pretty good job don’t you?

EDITING WHEN AND WHY

Pet Pictures Las Vegas

Every photographer has a philosophy on editing. Editing is an art form therefor there is no right or wrong way to edit a photograph. Rest assured though professional photographers in Las Vegas and worldwide have strong opinions on what to edit, when and why. There is a lot of power in editing. With technology and programs being more advanced than ever before the art of photo manipulation has taken a life of its own. My thoughts on the subject are this, I am a photographer, not a graphic artist. I capture energies how I see them and try to perfect in camera as much as possible. When I edit, it is with clear intention and is to enhance an image. Alteration is at a minimum at least that’s the hope. If a client sees an image and can’t tell it’s edited I consider that mastery.

So what do I edit? A lot of people think of editing as a thinning tool, take a few pounds off here and there, it is the running joke about photoshop. The majority of what I do when I edit is color correction and taking away distractions from the subject. The below image, for instance, is a perfect example. It’s a great capture and this client is virtually flawless, however, the image on the right allows the viewer to focus on just the subject. Being in love with this staircase this image and angle where captured deliberately knowing that I could take out the distractions in the post. When it comes to editing it’s not less that is more but choosing what one should edit and being thoughtful about that choice.
