I’ve been developing this for a while now, but never got around to finishing it. There have been a few changes on Twitter since I first started this. Mainly the new addition to add a header image to your profile on twitter.
Just some notes.
In the past I’ve delivered my images to my brides on DVD/CDs. Not long ago I shot a wedding and delivered the images on a DVD, which resulted in some difficulties for the bride and myself. My optical drive went bad on me. Leaving me to figure out a solution in the middle of delivering my images to her. I borrowed a friend’s computer to burn the images, but when the bride received the images she was having trouble getting the images off the CD and having her computer read the CD. So I had to upload them all to my server and have her download all of them. This was a terrible situation for both of us.

I’ve had to make numerous cover photo and profile image designs. It gets really annoying after awhile when you have to keep replicating your templates for facebook.

After posting some of Emily’s photos, I was getting a lot of people asking me how I processed the photos. Although, not every one of her photos was processed like I will be explaining below. I will help illustrate how I did two of my favorite images from her session. I like to process a lot of my photos with a vintage/retro/old poloraid feel to them. I enjoy that style, and I feel it helps convey certain moods in photographs. Her images came out fine SOOC (straight out of camera), but the mood created by the final post-processing makes the image more engaging. Not every photo will come out like the end result in this tutorial. A lot of factors depend on how the end result will look. For example how well the original image was strobed, your scene, and original tones in the image.
One of the most important features of an e-Commerce site is the product photos. Having the ability for the customer to almost feel the item through the screen, and knowing how the product would be as if they had bought it. This could be the difference between you making a good conversion rate or not. Gaining customer trust is another aspect that can be acquired with good product photography.
