Think the weather is too bad for photography? Or that all of the magic happens in camera? With modern digital photography that is no longer the case. Editing or post-processing with programs such as Adobe Photoshop allow us to enhance and enrich images as well as make up for some challenging Irish weather.
On this page we have several examples to show you what goes into making an image. It is a lot more work than you likely realize. We use multiple images to combine lighting from different angles and at different exposures to create the final image. The larger the space being photographed, the more images (and light) are required.
Something to note regarding the weather, photographing under cloudy or partly cloudy skies will give you softer shadows and often a better result. So don't always feel the need to hold out for better weather, especially if the building faces north or is in the shadow of other nearby buildings.
Also, keep in mind that a large part of the expense involved in making images is the time spent in Photoshop post-processing (or as photographers simply call "post"). If you are looking to spend less to document a smaller project or possibly an older one you never had photographed, you may wish to limit the amount of post we do. We can still produce quality images, but we may limit the post processing to sky replacements and some less detailed enhancements that are less time consuming. Doing this can at times cut production costs in half. Ask us for more information.
