Some photographers frown on this, but I do it because sneak peeks help get clients excited about the session. When clients are excited, I'm excited, and we're able to feed off of each other's energy. Sneak peeks also open the door for feedback so I know what clients like and don't like and can adjust accordingly.
There's just one catch. Because the images aren't edited, I make sure to let clients know that what they see isn't what they'll be getting. That's because post processing -- or the process where photos are uploaded onto a computer and adjusted for light, color and consistency -- is where the magic happens! It is through this process that photographers are able to take a good photograph and make it great, as well as insert their own unique style onto the image.
I wanted to demonstrate just how important post processing is, so for the first time EVER, I'm showing a few completely unedited photos so you can see the transformation that takes place!
Lightroom changes all of that. By adjusting the exposure, shadows and dark areas in the photograph, I was able to turn it into a product I can stand by.
