Color Processing – Exclusive Options

JLB’s unique color processing is not available anywhere else and is no additional charge. Years have gone into developing and improving my own exclusive RAW processing profile options. I believe the transition to digital photography lost some aesthetic magic. I have designed my processing profiles to produce a more organic image and recapture that film-like aesthetic.

WARNING. Extremely nerdy camera-gear talk and meant for the most curious of you. If you don’t want to read all the details just scroll to the photos.

Only those into photography might know what a RAW image actually is. All professional cameras and many less serious cameras now offer the ability to save a RAW image file to the camera’s memory card when taking a photo. RAW image files are made up of all the data captured by the camera’s sensor, recorded without being filtered or processed, and is not in anyway ready for printing. Generally these files look pretty terrible and you don’t want them. Their benefit is offering the photographer more creative freedom in how the final images turnout or are processed.

The currently available color processing options include:

1. Film – not your boring baseline coloring
2. West Coast – warmer and soft
3. East Coast – high contrast, high clarity, exaggerated chromatics
4. B&W – warm, high contrast, crushed blacks

Please note that I’m always tweaking the color options. The resulting images from your wedding or session may be different than those currently displayed here.

There’s no need to pick favorites, my clients receive all their photos in all four of these processes. I can design an album from your wedding or story session in any color or combination of colors.
