Posts from July 2016

I was browsing a mobile phone review web site recently and noticed that some of the leading brands now ship with a 23 megapixel camera. While only two-thirds the resolution of today's top DSLR cameras, it is impressive nevertheless. Reading the review of one particular mobile phone, it described the photos as “... pin sharp, brightly coloured, and full of fine details in both the bright spots and shade. The camera can also be launched and a shot taken faster than with any other mobile device.” 
 
So what are the tangible elements that set the professional photographer apart from the keen amateur? 
At the end of May we had the privilege of filming a stunning countryside wedding in the breath-taking surroundings of the Surrey Hills near Guildford. 
 
The wedding ceremony itself took place at the idyllic St Martha-on-the-Hill church in Chilworth, Surrey which we actually photographed from the air over 4.5 years ago in December 2011. 
We are often asked if we are able to remove certain distracting features from the photographs we have taken. These requests can range from removing contrails from the sky, leaves from a lawn or graffiti from walls, and doing so will often make the difference between a good image and one that really shines and helps to keep the viewer's attention fixed on the intended subject. Occasionally, we are also asked if we can add features to photographs which weren't there to begin with, like adding a more attractive sky or digitally 'seeding' a new lawn!
