What is a 'Topshot'?
What are the differencies between Mini, Midi and Maxi?
Within the service scope of most Studiolounge photo sessions, a certain number of so-called topshots is always included. After the photo session, the topshots are selected from the generated photo material together with the photographer and then individually corrected. Digital photographs nearly always need to be edited; this way, you benefit from a considerable visual enhancement. Every photograph is edited one by one, and individual customer wishes are also taken into consideration. Depending on the degree of image processing, this work can be very complex.
Your photos will be processed with Photoshop; as a rule, Instagram filters are not applied etc.
