Picture Perfect

The process starts with capturing the perfect shot, importing it into your chosen software, organising your photos, developing your images with precise editing tools and finally, delivering the finished product.


The subject matter is the key element of composition and the right lighting can make or break a photograph. 


But it’s not just about lighting, the aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings also play a huge role in getting the perfect exposure.


You know what’s the most important thing when it comes to your data Keeping it safe and secure! That’s why I make sure to take all the necessary measures to ensure that your data is well-protected and backed up regularly.


It’s not just about organising your photos, it’s also about being smart about it. That’s where metadata comes in. Metadata is the information about your content including the title, author and genre that makes it super easy to find exactly what you need. 


Several techniques like cropping, straightening, adjusting the tone and colour, sharpening, removing any unwanted artefacts and even adding creative effects will help create the desired result.


Before you share your photos with the world, it’s important to make sure they are looking their best. This will involve upgrading to high resolution and optimal file size, correct aspect ratio and frame rate.
