YORBA LINDA, CALIFORNIA — Several years ago, K.C. Crow gave up her high-paying job as an attorney to become a lifestyle photographer. Instead of trying cases, she now captures the special moments of adorable toddlers— and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Five things Professional Photographers don’t want you to know
In validation of the old adage “What goes around, comes around,” photo booths are back and are more popular than ever. Originally patented in 1888, the photo booth (aka “automated photography machine”) first gained popularity at penny arcades, amusement parks, and carnivals. To receive your photographic mementos of the moment, you just popped behind the curtain, adjusted the seat, deposited twenty-five cents and smiled! Ten minutes later a strip of eight fairly decent black and white (or sepia) photos would slide out a chute on the side.
As the popular phrase goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” You can tell a lot about a person or an animal or an object based off of a photograph. While a photograph does not tell the whole story, it’s quite common to think that a picture can give a lot of insight into a situation, an event, or a passing moment. Photographs are extremely visually appealing to most people and that’s why they are used often for marketing and/or advertising purposes. By using photographs in order to market yourself, your business, or your firm, you may have an advantage over other companies that you’re competing with. An attractive or powerful image can have a major positive impact and cause your business to become more popular than ever before.
Selective colour is like the marmite of the photography world, no matter whether you love it or hate it, you can't deny its popularity. Some photographers like it, some hate it with a passion and refuse to do it, even when their clients ask them to. Personally, I think if a client asks for it, then that's what you should do for them, because that is why they are paying you. If you asked a decorator to paint your house a certain colour and they refused because they didn't like it, would you put up with that?
One of the most common things people want when having their photos edited is to have something removed from the photo. These things can range from removing a car in the background to removing an unwanted person in the foreground. There are quite a few ways you can remove something from a picture, and how easy it is will depend on a lot of things. But for this tutorial, I will focus on a basic, easy picture and use the "clone" method in GIMP.
Sometimes photos need to be sharpened, it doesn't matter why, whether it is because of the sea mist that plagues anyone that lives by the coast or the pollution that haunts anyone that lives in the city, or simply because you just want to make your photo look a little bit sharper. Once upon a time, we would simply have had to write off a bad photo and move on, but now we can easily remedy a little bit of blur or a lack of crispness.
We all know how cropping can remove some unwanted things from a photo; it can be a great way to tidy up a picture. From removing the irritating photobomber, to totally cropping out an ex, it can be your photo's best friend. But cropping can do so much more than just remove things, it can really help remove background clutter and pull focus to where you want it to be. Basically, cropping can give you much more control over your pictures.
Anyone with a phone knows at least a little something about editing pictures, even if it is just applying a filter that makes you look a little bit more fabulous; it's quick, it's easy, and it makes a huge difference. But when it comes to real photo editors, it's not always that simple; there are so many to choose from, each offering a different level of professionalism and user-friendliness. The photo editor that is right for you will totally depend on what you are looking for and what kind of photos you take.
