Looking like the Real You in Senior Portraits: A Note on Photo Editing

Over the past few years, photography has seen many changes in the photo editing process and styles. With the popularization of digital photo retouching we have seen editing begin to go too far, causing subjects to lose their own natural appearances. At David Roberts Photography you will not only have a fun experience and get unique, awesome images to pick from; but you will also get the best variety around in one convenient location. You will look like your natural self in your portraits with appropriate use of retouching and editing. Our editing adds the appropriate saturation and whitening to your eyes so you still look natural. We will not erase or mask your facial features, over-brighten or sharpen to give you “alien eyes”, plastic looking skin or over-saturate your images.

Our creative retouching is used to display your beauty—or handsomeness!—without changing or losing your unique features. We want our images to reflect the real you, and we will never distort or over-edit your portraits. Our goal has always been to capture your true self in your senior portraits, or in any portraits that we create. We want you to dress, look, and be who you are in your portraits so that you, your parents, family, and friends will have a portrait of the real you to rekindle memories of the time you began to spread your wings and become a young adult. We want you to look like the real you.

Select David Roberts Photography so we can capture the real, natural you. Call today! 248.652.2131 Check out our website at www.DavidRobertsStudio.com.

The summer of your senior year is finally here, many decisions to be made this year. Your senior portraits are one of those many experiences you will have. At David Roberts Photography we make your photographic experience a fun one as we capture the real you. We have the advantage of not only offering you the full studio experience with large interior camera rooms for you to play in, but also outdoors in our private gardens and our new open air camera room. One place, one awesome experience. Our in studio sessions let’s you express your  true self with multiple outfits, props and more. What’s your style? Are you into sports? How about shoes or do you wear hats or play an instrument?  Like the urban look?  Don’t forget about our In Studio Urban. This is when we place you into one of our many very cool scenes, how convenient. This is your time to shine and bring out your inner awesome and “Rock the Shot.”

Do you love the outdoors? David Roberts Photography has that too. Remember one place one awesome experience. You can be photographed in our private gardens, no public gawkers, no waiting for people to move out of an area, no changing in the car or fighting traffic. You will have the benefit of experiencing our 10′ waterfall, flowers, tall grass areas, dock and old truck just to name a few and don’t forget our popular Backlot with an upright piano, key west look and more.. Have a favorite location? We also travel, but many of our clients often tell us they can’t believe how much variety we offer in just one location.

There are pivotal times in our lives when we have professional portraits taken, and your senior year is one of them. Don’t compromise these important portraits by going to a photographer with little to no experience. Enjoy the true experience of being photographed by a professional photographer with years of time tested experience. We offer you a wide variety of products that you will cherish for a lifetime. Visit our website at DavidRobertsStudio, connect with us on Facebook and Instagram. One very convenient place with so much to offer we can’t describe it all. One awesome experience!
