How a good photo can become a great photo

Sometimes the photos look good straight out of the camera and it can look as if they don't need to be edited any more... but there could be a really great photo hidden in there if you just have the vision to go for something even greater.

I have a few examples below.

A veces las fotos pueden parecer bien directamente de la cámara y puede parecer como si fuera no necesitan más cambias... pero podria hay una foto maravillosa si justo tienes la visión para probar algo.

Tengo unos ejemplos abajo.

Before
After

In this case I had an OK, regular looking photo. With a bit of contrast increase, vibrancy, and vignetting - it gets the really vivid, proper live stage photo.

Before
After

For this photo I did contrast and colour adjustments, crop, removed the spots that were on the wall behind, and a bit of teeth whitening.

After

Here vignetting also used to place more focus on the child and make the background less important + increasing contrast for a punchier look and colour adjustments.

After

Contrast adjustments + removing bags under the eyes make this photo look fresher.

After

In this case I have opened up the shadows so there are more details in the face, colour adjustments and cropping to remove unnecessary details in the photo.
