Photo Editing

The Magic of Editing by Sydney Joseph

A large part of my journey in the world of photography has been in figuring out what I want my photography to say to the person looking at it. A major part of that was in discovering the kinds of photos I like to shoot but an equivalently important part was finding my editing style.

When I first started out I didn’t have access to any editing software so for a long time to bring my vision to life I had to capture my images perfectly as I was taking the picture. There was no option to bring a photo into post-production and then change the exposure or the colours or anything of the sort. Either it was perfect on the camera or it was a dud. Looking back on that experience, I realise that now, I very rarely do any major adjustments in post production. On occasion, I’m a little bit lazy and I don’t expose my photos perfectly or straighten my horizons because I know I have to option to edit but I my final vision is always very close to the straight out of camera (SOOC) shot.

So I invite you to take a look at a few of my Before & After shots to get a glimpse at my process. I hope you enjoy.
