In a word, yes!
All photos are run through our basic or rudimentary process. This includes colour correction, exposure adjustments, tonal adjustments, contrast and others. The end result provides a base for additional processing such as our signature style and black and white conversions.
Many photographers will run the images through a preset and leave it at that. Unfortunately, this cookie cutter processing doesn’t work for all images due to many factors including lighting changes and the subject’s skin tone. While it may be faster to process photos with a preset, it doesn’t allow for the best quality.
Our processing is to accentuate what we’ve captured in the camera, not to hide mistakes.
