Yesterday was a day for shooting roofs. A local roofing and exteriors firm is updating their website and needed images of some of the projects they had completed.
In addition to photographing the buildings, much of the look of the final image comes down to the editing of the images. Things like making sure color is accurate and that contrast is visually pleasing is all part of creating a polished final image.
The image above has also been altered in the sky area in order to take text. The solid color makes it easier to place text in the image that is easy to read. This technique is also popular if a client is wishing to place their company logo on an image, or wishing to blend an image with surrounding packaging, as in food photography.
Other alterations that occur to create a pleasing image are the blending and darkening of areas of the image in order to highlight the main subject matter, as well as the removal of distracting elements.
The goal is to create the finest image possible for the client whether it is portrait, food, product or architectural photography.
