A question I get pretty much every day from our clients (especially our loyal Groupon customers) is: “What do you mean when you stylize a photo?” Despite the fact that I basically made this word up (haha), I was actually surprised by how many people didn’t instinctively know what I was talking about. To put it simply: When I say “stylize” a photo, I basically mean to alter the colors of the image to achieve a different look. To walk you through an example, I’ve chosen this lovely children’s photo below.
- The photo above is straight from the camera. No editing (aside from the silly watermark). Not too bad, right?
- This photo received my standard color-correction treatment. Every photo you ever receive from Winston and Khan goes through this process. WAY better!
- This photo has been stylized to fit with a more “Fall” theme. Notice how the yellows and oranges are exaggerated? Yep, I did that on purpose.
- A more vintage-esque style was applied here. This is what I would consider a “softer” Fall theme.
As you may come to guess, a lot of what I do comes down to taste. Sometimes you get photos like the one above where it looks awesome in a lot of different flavors – others are not so forgiving. It’s my job to make sure you get the best one every time 🙂 Hope this clarifies any confusion! (Oh, and for the record – there are more options than the 3 I’ve posted here!)
