I get asked a lot why my images take so much time compared to other photographers and the reason is simple, I'm a fine art photographer. What that means is, I never deliver images straight out of camera or with a filter added. The painstaking process of hand-editing and retouching each image is what makes my work so unique. I spend 1-2 hours (sometimes more) per image making everything perfect. Clients see the difference because I only edit the images you pick, so when they receive them they always comment on the edit! For this image the dress is actually a bright purple and my background was not long enough to get all the fabric so I had to extend it!
