Artful Manipulation For That Perfect Photograph

Photo manipulation is the art of transforming one photograph into another image altogether by either removing or adding something. Taking a person out or putting one in.....removing a boring blue sky and adding one with big puffy clouds or stormy ones. Even something as small as removing the telephone pole behind the subject's head.

Here are two very different versions of a very famous haunted hotel in Jerome Arizona. The first is a morning shot taken of course in bright sunlight. The second image is a total manipulation of the first. I put in a dark cloudy sky, removed signage, illuminated the lights on the building, and added both a ghost young lady and waiting carriage....

Black and white wedding portrait with a busy unremarkable Sedona, AZ background transformed into a stunning Sedona showpiece.






Before and After of the Saloon building at Goldfield Ghost Town in Arizona.  Bland sky, dark shadows and several distractions make the original unimpressive.

The final image required removal of all signage and distractions, adding vintage sepia, clouds, age spots, film cracks and reel border for that realistic old western movie feel.

How many photos just like this do we take and think 'I saw so much more color and detail than I see here!"

With some digital imagery we can make a so so photo into a WOW photo image!
