Admitting that good photography is more about Editing

Let’s face it… we’ve all seen those super epic photos portraits done by “professional” photographers, and thought to ourselves “how are they so good at taking photos?”.

The truth is, it’s less about the photo and more about the editing. The better you are at an editing software like photoshop, the better of a “photographer” you will be. Personally, that makes no sense to me at all. But in any case, here is an example of what I mean. On the right are the raw photos that I took with an older logo. And on the right are some edits I made in photoshop along with the newer logo.

They’re not slam-bam-thank-you-mam, by any means. But I think you get the point. I am a lot happier with how they look after having tweaked them a little in photoshop.
