Olympus Air, review

Snowdonia - Olympus Air
Snowdon Mountain, North Wales 
I knew of the Olympus Air since earlier this year when Olympus announced it. However, information on whether it will hit the UK shelves was scarce. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago, we noticed our friend in the United State posting photographs of his Olympus Air on his FB so we ordered and had it delivered to the UK. The Olympus Air is very small camera and comes with the SDK and design files which made it also interesting for my husband who is a software developer. This is my usage review of the camera and  my husband will follow it up with something from a developer’s point of view. Continue reading »

Editing and Retouching

One of the most time consuming things a photographer does is editing or developing the photographs taken.  The majority of the photographs taken for private clients (not professional models), need some perfecting. This  is not done during the proofing process because it will take time to do. During the proofing, I will only apply basic editing to all the images. It can be as simple as balancing exposures, wonky angles, fixing white balance. Orders are edited a bit more but not to the point of editing away strands of hair and flawless skin like the video below. That much editing is what I call “Retouching”. It is when we do more to improve the image. This is when the photographer/retoucher becomes the hairstylist, make-up artist, dentist, plastic surgeon, dermatologist and artist. Developing images takes time and for small businesses, time is money.  It is not like we will wave our magic wands and voila, the blotchy skin becomes flawless. A video below from one of the best professional retouchers in the industry, Pratik Naik shows the process – it took him 2hours to make this  beauty shot “perfect”.

At the studio, all of the orders purchased by clients are edited/developped. We also offer light and premium retouching services for those pictures you want us to add an extra umph to. Retouching is priced by picture and the amount of work that needed doing.

Newborn Photographer London | Charming Henry

Newborn Photography London Meet little Henry, a wonderful little boy who loves his nap and his food. He came to the studio at around 21 days old so some of the newborn poses are a bit tricky for him. Besides, no matter how much I want to capture an image/pose, I won’t do it if it is too disruptive/uncomfortable for the baby. I was able to put my little NAO robot on top of his lower back because he does not move when he’s asleep. Below are some of my favourite images from his photoshoot. Continue reading »
