Photography doesn’t end with posing and clicking. A lot of depth goes into making those captured moments come alive in either print or digital files. Today’s technology has led to the evolution of storage facilities where we can safely store files making it easier to access our favourite files whenever possible. Additionally some software technologies are engineered to not just adjust or edit clicks but to store files in the exact organised way we want. 

Photographs being works of art need recognition and instead of storing them as digital files and keeping them from being viewed and appreciated, we can rather create slideshows or at least get a few of our favourites printed in an artistic way. It is true there is something too personal about photographs; may be it’s because of the labour and skills that go into clicking some of the most amazing captures. However most of us who are new into photography, especially standard or Fine Art Photographs here are tips to follow: 

Getting the frame right 

Soft or bold, light plays the basis in photography. Furthermore positioning of the subject in directions where they look most comfortable and natural adds to the depth of the capture. Furthermore, the photographer ought to fit in the right expression. While working behind the lens a photographer will do anything to maintain balance in the composition. However, amidst all these techniques and art, the man behind the lens must pay heed to the way he is using Photoshop or any other photo editing software

Editing on Photoshop

Ever since the advent of Photoshop the darkroom printing method has become obsolete. Now, let’s cut it short. Level up the image on Photoshop as it will help define the depth of the frame. People often opt for a mid-tone which gives a photo a new dimension. When choosing tones, be careful of what you pick. While a lighter tone will make the image appear milkier, a mid tone will help balance everything. Also, be wary of darker tones; chances are the image will look muddy. Amidst all these don’t forget to adjust the saturation level. Little tweaks with the adjustment can bring just the right balance while the image will take its own course in shaping up. 

Adding texture 

While some photographers think its mainstay, others consider it optional. For adding texture to the image, photographers will generally get a close-up of the surrounding, chiefly the wall and then blend both images by using opacity of the layer palette. 

Tone control 

This forms a part of the final step where photographers will need performing the “Dodge and Burn” technique. The process allows a subtle finish to the photograph. Whether, its passion or profession a photographer will use this subtle finishing for a professional look. Under a majority of instances, photographers who pursue photography for commercial purpose and put Photography Prints for Sale will consider tone control so that their work of art becomes a centrepiece on the gallery wall. 

Furthermore photographers pay attention to the quality of printing paper used. They should look for paper which offers maximum colour rendition while contributing to the depth and texture of the image. 

In nutshell, this is how professional photography takes place.
