Here's an example of what I did to edit each picture. This picture was the last one I took, and I was getting lazy. So the "before" picture was exceptionally bad, as they weren't positioned well in front of the backdrop and the color wasn't right. Not all of them were quite this bad straight out of camera.
A little cropping, add a little brightness, add a little more contrast, a little adjusting of the color, add a slight vignette, sharpening, some photoshop to fill in the backdrop in the right corner, then more photoshop to get rid of the glare in their glasses...no wonder it took me eight hours to edit all these pictures! Thank goodness for digital photography! I never would have made it as a film photographer.
