Topshots (Retouch)

TOPSHOTS mini, midi and maxi

Short Overview

What are Topshots?
What are the differencies between Mini, Midi and Maxi?

Topshots are images retouched / processed by Photoshop.
According to the shooting that you have scheduled, one or two topshots are included in your package.

We offer three types of retouches: mini, midi and maxi.

Your topshot will be selected together with the photographer! You may then decide whether you wish to have mini, midi or maxi.

How exactly are the topshot(s) selected?
With the shooting BASIC the topshot will be selected directly on the camera screen; whereas with the other shootings the photos to be retouched will be discussed in front of true color HD screens according to professional criteria. You will be going through your files one by one together with the photographer.

Find below a detailled description of our topshots:

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 or beauty apps etc. are not applied!

The Studiolounge offers three different photoshop treatments:

Select your topshots in the Mini, Midi or Maxi versions.

The “Mini” topshot is included as standard in all offers. (with the exception of the Lounge packages 30 and 45).
