Basketball Photos at the Faison Wellness Center

This weekend I had the chance to work with the boys and girls recreation basketball league at the Wellness Center located in Faison, North Carolina. I let the players choose between several different type of action or posed shots. This week I have been showing you what you can expect as far as editing when you get a photo from Kirk Pullen Photography. You can see the before and after photos, with the first photo being straight out of the camera and the second being the finished edited image.

Before and After

Kirk Pullen Photography takes the time to edit every image in Photoshop to make each client look their best. Many people think that Photoshop is easy to use and with just a few clicks you can magically transform someone. That is not necessarily true. It can sometimes take hours to get an image to look the best that it can. I spent around 45 minutes editing this image of a local senior. No person has perfect skin and you can think of Kirk Pullen Photography as your digital make up artist!

Working with Author L.N. Cronk

This week, I had the pleasure of working with Christian fiction author L.N. Cronk. L.N. needed help bringing her vision for her latest novel's cover together with the publisher's. I incorporated several Kirk Pullen Photography beach photos along with a stock photo to create the book cover. I also arranged and edited the badge text to reflect the main character's information. The One I Trust, a thriller with a bit of romance, is soon to be released. In the meantime, you can check out L.N.'s first series which begins with Chop, Chop at Amazon.

Outdoor Senior Portraits

Kirk Pullen Photography has a vast amount of experience working with seniors from local high schools. I took this picture of Raychel near Clinton, North Carolina. The sun was just starting to set as Raychel was standing next to the barn door. As you can see, the sunlight was very diffused gave us some great soft light. Sunset is usually the best time to take outdoor photos. Typically in the middle of the day the light gets too harsh and the bright parts of a photo start losing their details. If you know how to light a photo correctly, then you can do it any time of day. The great thing about going outside to take senior portraits is the variety of images that can be created.

Senior Portraits

I took this senior portrait of Kathleen at a house near Mt. Olive, North Carolina. It was great because the property had ponds, hay bails, and animals. It makes it so easy to take photos of seniors outdoors when there are a variety of settings to choose from. My thanks to the Britt family for letting me capture these images.

Fall Family Portraits in Faison, North Carolina

The best time of year to photograph someone outdoors is the fall. The color just adds another dimension to a photograph that you just can't get any other time of year. I've had the opportunity to photograph the Williams family for several years now and they always end up with fantastic outdoor family portraits. If you would like pictures of your family that you will never forget, call me soon before all the colored leaves disappear.
