    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    I've never taken band photos before. I found out quickly that the black shirts combined with the black back ground is a pain in the ars.

    Any suggestions from experienced photographers appreciated. I was hoping to get something a little more dramatic, lighting and such. Not bad for a first try, but I'm planning more shows in the future.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    All of the images can be made to "pop" a bit more with some simple curve adjustment in photoshop and color correction. They're all very good "as is" aswell, but I'd still ramp up the mid tones a tiny bit and make the blacks a tiny bit deeper and add some saturation. I made an example as it says your images are OK to edit:

    The difference isn't huge, but enough to make it look a bit cleaner. Ofcourse, post processing all comes down to your own personal taste so you could still go further with the editing, using a bit of dodge/burn to bring out or tone down whatever you like in the image.
