Sometimes you look back at previous images and think about what you could have/should have done differently. Ok, its not sometimes for me; it's all the time. I second guess everything.

  • "I should have gone at a different time of day"
  • "Dang that one's out of focus, but it's the perfect pose" 
  • "Shoot, I didn't notice that tree sticking out of his head"
  • "That background is really ugly"
  • "Why didn't I try this or that or the other thing......"

When shooting for clients, a do-over just isn't possible. Sometimes it means editing the photo in a different way. Editing can really change the feel of an image. You can do simple things like cropping differently or changing the image to black and white. It's truly amazing how much you can change about an image and often very easily.

Below is an image I took several years ago. It's an image of a friend's dog Chloe. She is a super beautiful girl who loves to pose and pose and pose. I love the original image of her, but I figured I'd try some alternatives to see what else I could come up with. 

Here is the original. 

This is just a simple crop. Isn't she beautiful?

Here she is in black and white. 

In contrast, here is the image with a tad more color :)

 

And here I've applied an oil painting effect. 

To see other pet photographers transform some of their prior images, head on over to see Nancy of Nancy Kieffer Photography servicing Central New York, the Adirondacks and beyond. 

Come find me on Instagram to get your fix of puppies!

I think I love the simple crop the most. It's neat to see how different you can make a single image.

I love the simple crop and the oil painting effect. But I agree with Kelly.

She is such a gorgeous dog. I have a feeling that background wouldn't matter a bit. ;)
