Spring into High School Senior Season

Posted in ,

Tagged with , , , , , ,

I was honored to be a part of the Spring into Summer campaign and jumped on board with a fun video on High School Seniors.  As we head into summer, Senior season is in full swing for a lot of studios. At the beginning of the season I enjoy creating a few new presets, inspired by my first couple sessions. Styles and trends are always evolving as well as my mood can vary when I am editing the start of a new season of seniors.

The video I am sharing with you guys has the editing of two photos, one color and one black and white. I wanted to share what inspired me and the process of finishing each of the images. I have lots of people requesting portrait retouching as well so this should give you some quick tips on how to work on the skin and eyes of your senior.

I am happy to answer any questions if you have them. Thank you for taking the time to watch! I really enjoy making these videos (and blog posts!) for all of you! If anyone used the presets I included in the download (this can be found HERE) please feel free to share on the forums if you are plus member. I started a thread in the High School Senior category and I would LOVE to see your photos!

    HI Marc,

    Thanks for watching. Matte BW is definitely a personal choice. I like it and use it in my studio so that is what I show my clients and they love it. I think the Matte look is popular at the moment but as we all know styles and trends change often. My focus is kids/families so I am not sure if the fashion industry widely uses matte finish. It really just boils down to personal choice. If you are not a fan…stick with the contrasty, dramatic look. No matter what classic BW will always be in style.
