Before & Ta-Dahhh | The Stolen Kiss

April 26, 2020

I simply love this photo of Joe planting a kiss on Izzy’s cheek, with some of their wedding guests peering in from the left. I’m a sucker for in-between moments like this.

This is the ‘before’ photo as it came out of my camera…

SVP Likes: The moment is nothing short of lovely. The composition works well to tell the story and give the image breathing space. And the exposure is spot on. This photo has the makings of a favourite image.

SVP Dislikes: Joe and Izzy’s skin tones look red. The overall finish is flat. And the colours (particularly the reds and greens) are distracting.

SVP TLC: 1/ The redness has been removed ensuring Joe & Izzy look as radiant as they did on the day. 2/ The contrast has been increased giving the image more punch and richness, especially in the background and to the left. 3/ The edited photo was then converted into black and white to stop your eye wandering around all the different colours, putting the attention on Joe and Izzy.
