The main reason why couples hire professionals for wedding photography is that they want their special occasion to be captured perfectly and wanted it to be something they can cherish for years to come. That is why you do not want to make mistakes while editing wedding photos. Some couples hire professional picture editing services, while some others trust their photographers. There are some common wedding photo editing mistakes that you might want to avoid to make the pictures more attractive. A few are discussed here.
People who are inexperienced in photo editing often make this mistake. Cropping should be uniform so that all of the images will be displayed and printed correctly. You need to correctly crop your image because it has a big impact on how your image is perceived by the viewer. If the horizon appears to be skewed. To make the image correct, you can use the straighten tool. There are also background distractions that can be cropped out easily.
Saturated Skin Tones
In wedding photos, skin tones are very crucial. It is not always easy to capture beautiful skin if the light is not that great. That is why photo editing companies use editing software to enhance skin tones. If your image’s skin tones are becoming overly saturated in Lightroom, go to the HSL panel and grab the icon next to Saturation, hover over your subject’s skin, and left-click and drag down with your mouse to reach the correct color channel’s saturation. Do the same thing, but this time take the Luminance icon and slide it up over your subject’s skin to brighten it up and make it pop more.
Forgetting to Shoot in RAW Format
When planning a wedding, many people neglect this. Shooting in RAW provides you the freedom to customize your photos and correct faults. Weddings are fast-paced, and you won’t be able to nail the exposure in every frame if you don’t always have control over the lighting. When compared to a JPEG photograph, RAW records many more degrees of brightness. This means you won’t always be able to restore those overexposed highlights or extract clear detail out of the shadows. You can also quickly change white balance and color with RAWs, but JPEGs are severely constrained. RAW simply enables non-destructive editing and improved image consistency from one to the next.
