A large part of being a photographer these days is spent editing photographs using the latest software and as such, it is not uncommon for a photographer to have highly practiced graphic design skills. The high end product photography that Matthew Brown specializes in means he often spends more time working on a photograph than taking it and he is now making these tools available to clients. He can adjust lighting and clarity, add sharpness, take people and objects out of their background and apply new backgrounds, adjust facial features, smooth skin blemishes and remove dust and dirt.

These processes are applied to many professional grade photographs anyway and sometimes it may be the case that a photograph already exists for your particular need and cannot be taken again or it isn't deemed necessary, but is in need of some of these treatments in order to be used. Matt has also been known to take film prints or negatives, have them scanned and then digitally altered for the clients needs. He is here to help and if you have a photograph that needs some work, please don't hesitate to make contact. All digital manipulation is charged at £50 per hour. Please have a look below at some examples of the types of alterations that are regularly performed.

We hope you have found learning a little about these photographic techniques interesting and if you do need any alterations made to existing photographs, then please do not hesistate to get in touch to discuss your requirements. 

These editing methods are in almost constant use during the course of Matthew's daily photographic work, so do head over to the portfolio and see if you can spot them in action.
