My Photo Editor Mind - Interpreting your soul

Jun 27, 2018
Being a freelance picture editor with clients from all over the world, sitting down next to each other for a chat about the work isn’t really possible. So not only do I feel my work is picture editing but actually interpreting your soul and your vision. My job is to figure out your intent with your images and then help you tell the story. 

It’s pretty amazing when I sit down with a collection of images and let them speak for themselves. Sometimes, it’s actually easier without knowing what the photog’s intent was, but to just see them and feel the emotions behind them. Eventually, the photos start telling their stories, your intentions become clear, and I begin to put the puzzle pieces together the way I believe you originally saw them. I always insist on a talk after an edit to make sure I saw what you saw, and sometimes, it turns out I saw something you might have missed.
