Optimus Prime Edit

Editing still takes too long. But to do it right, I have to go through all of the basic steps to correct an image and produce a look that the client would be happy with (otherwise what's the point of practice?):

  • Colour correction
  • Sharpening
  • Illumination
  • Correcting shadows
  • Manipulating background
  • Adding glowy eyes
  • Adding glowy lights
  • Correcting perspective

These days I don't edit much because time is limited, and spending 2 hours on one image is a luxury I don't have (unless it is a paid job).

This kind of editing is ideal for catalogue / product photography. It's to produce sharp, colourful images of the product being displayed on a website or brochure. This toy collection is part of a friend's Transformers collection and is unique because it has been autographed.
