Before and After Toning

NOT TONED

TONED IMAGE

Example of an image before toning straight out of the camera.
Example of the same image after toning or post processing.

This first image is what you would see when picking your images in my gallery.  All images are straight out of the camera.   What does that mean?  It means no cropping or toning.   This is done because it would take weeks to tone every image.   All I am looking for it you to pick which images you like.   The next step in the process  I will tone your image.

This image was basically toned.  That process can involve retouching, cloning and basic tonal scale and color correction.  The goal is to improve tonal gradations and color balance of the image.  All images need this step.  I have never used an image straight out of the camera.  Good toning should not only do the above but also direct your eye towards the subject.   Image flow is very important in art.

Alternative Toning Options

These are just a few example of alternative toning options. I can do just about anything to an image in Adobe Photoshop. The colors used in the examples can be changed, however certain color combinations look better than others. If you like the matte look it is easy to change by just lowering the overall contrast. Some of these looks might not look on every image. If you like something I can give you other variation that look good.
