The theme for the 52 Week Project this week is then and now. We could show our progress as photographers, show how our pets have grown, or show before and after edits. I thought it would be great to show a before and after edit.
I was in St Louis for part of this week and I had a session with an awesome disk dog named Sky while I was there. Coincidentally, I had to replace the sky in the photo, it’s not something I normally need to do since we live in Denver and enjoy our nice blue sky most of the year. But, I was in St. Louis and it had been raining right before the session and the sky was hazy and overblown so I had to replace it. I also lightened up the shadows a little, it helped bring out the color in his eyes. Now that I’m looking at it I’m probably going to replace the dead spots in the grass as well.
This is a before and after edit for a pup named Zero. We had our session in Denver so the sky is super blue but I did need to lighten the shadows a tiny bit, remove the leash and the little rock, remove the telephone pole on the right and straighten out the image a bit.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the before and after, I thought it was important to show some of the edits because some people worry they can’t have their dogs photos taken if they can’t be off leash. I always tell them I’d rather that their dog be safe and spend more time editing than risk the safety of their dog to save me some time.
Up next is Cincinnati pet photographer, Suzi Pix Photography. Don’t forget to click through all the links until you get back to StinkDog Photos.
Have a great week.
