The quality of a photo relies largely on the skill and equipment of the photographer. Photography is one of the most rewarding and colorful of industries one can find themselves in. There are a number of factors that go into taking the perfect picture from lighting and angles to exposure and negative space: the list goes on and on. With photo editing for professional photographers becoming more and more common, there is an increasing expectation of quality for photos coming from the general public. These are some of the industries and occasions where professional photo editing are most frequently requested.
Magazines and Online Advertising
When I was growing up, adults always used to say, “don’t always believe everything you see on TV.” Today it seems that magazines and the internet too have adopted the proclivity to deceive. Photo editing for professional photographers is used in nearly every magazine to make technology seem more shiny, products appear to be more engaging, and people seem to be without flaws. In the marketing world, photo editing is just one tool in the professional photographer’s arsenal.
Professional Real Estate Photo Editing
Since up to 92% of home buyers use the internet to help them find a home, photo listing has become a critical factor in helping to determine the selling price of your home, as well as how quickly it can sell. Homes in the $400,000 to $500,000 price range sold within six months 64% of the time when using a professional digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR camera) compared to 46% with average, point-and-shoot photos. Studies have shown that homes with professionally edited photos generally sold for more than their amateur photo counterparts.
Graduation or Wedding Photo Editing
With photo sharing on social media sites becoming everyone’s new favorite hobby, professional photographers are equipped to take spectacular photos that are twice as likely to be shared than user-generated photos. Because of our growing familiarity and awareness of photo editing, the National Press Photographers Association found that people were able to tell the difference between a professionally shot photo and an amateur around 90% of the time. For birthdays, weddings, graduations, and all of life’s moments that ought to be shared, consider hiring a professional photographer for photos that look like they belong in a storybook.
