Most professional photographers understand that photo editing is just as important as the actual pictures that they shoot. Although many photographers wonder if outsourcing their photo editing is the right choice for them.
When you outsource your photo editing, you form a partnership with the photo editing company that you choose. You get to select the company that you work with in much the same way that you would hire someone to work with you in your studio; you would look at their previous work and experience, and ensure that you are comfortable working with them. Except when you outsource, you don’t have to worry about payroll, scheduling and purchasing a new workstation and software.
The average photographer spends about two hours of post-production work for every hour they spend actually consulting with the client and shooting. In fact, several industry surveys have revealed that photographers spend approximately twenty hours of post-production time per wedding that they shoot. When you take a good hard look at how many hours you actually spend editing photos, you will most likely agree that it is much more cost effective to partner with another company that can handle your photo editing needs. With all of the extra time gained from outsourcing your photo editing, you will be able to:
- Provide better care for your clients
- Network more efficiently with vendors
- Promote and grow your business
Once you’ve made the important decision to outsource your photo editing, you will need to be prepared to describe exactly how you would like your photos to look. The photo editing company will be able to serve you much better if you are able to clearly describe what you need. However, you must be reasonable. Photo editing can take a lot of time and if you are used to editing your images one by one in Photoshop, it would be unrealistic to expect any company to be able to duplicate your look. Most photo editing services have standards which include neutral, natural skin tones with protected but bright highlights and crisp shadows without clipping any details. The general idea is to establish a good baseline image that you are able to proof to the client.
