Customer Guarantee


Image Processing
I strive to make every print perfect and every buying experience smooth and easy. With that in mind I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

If you ordered directly through this web site and are unhappy with your prints or gifts, Smugmug, my printing partner, will reprint or refund the cost of your order, whichever you prefer.

Simply send an email to help@smugmug.com within 30 days of receiving your order.

If you ordered directly from Brandolino Imaging (outside the web site order form) I will also have your order reprinted or I will refund the cost of your order, whichever you prefer. However, you will need to contact Brandolino Imaging directly through the Contact Bi page.

Please Note: My print partner, Smugmug, uses several professional labs renowned for their color accuracy, print quality and consistency, but unless I have chosen the color correction option for the gallery (or you have added it to the order when available), no adjustments to your chosen photos are made. This option gives a much more precise image color, but does add additional costs to the order.

Why are prints returned?.

A Note from the Photographer


Capturing Visions....Moments in Time....The Emotion of the Moment....


The Photographer
That is what I attempt to do with my photography. Is it art?

I see photography not just as pointing and shooting but as an art that allows me to capture a moment that can never be brought back. Lighting, movement, emotions, all go into my composition of a photograph and this is what makes my photography art.

My passion for photography started with early shots of my son and daughter in dance and sporting events. Over the years my self taught art has allowed me to capture amazing photos that family and friends will cherish always. During my travels to Europe I was able to see and photograph some of the most fascinating structures, and settings that I had only seen in books and dreamed of someday capturing. This is truly when I knew I needed to expand my love of photography into not just images for myself. This is how Brandolino Imaging came to be. Now I am producing images that will allow others see the art that I see through the camera, and to keep their precious memories alive.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests you may have.

Sincerely,
Anthony Brandolino

How we Process an Image


Currently all of my images are shot with a Nikon D3 or a Nikon D2h digital camera. I shoot exclusively in RAW mode since I feel this gives me the best ability in post-processing to draw out the full potential of an image.


Image Processing
Conversion of the RAW files is done using Nikon NX software as I feel it does the best job at rendering colors.

Once converted, the images are adjusted for sharpness, contrast, brightness and color correctness. Then they are cropped for composition if needed. The processing (image enhancement) is completed using either Nikon NX, Nikon NX Version 1.3, Nikon Capture Version 4.4, or Photoshop CS2 depending on the specific situation. Although I had used Nikon Capture almost exclusively in the past, Nikon NX has taken over the bulk of the work for processing (enhancement).

If you wish to see a few examples of what can be done to "enhance" an image, take a look at this example or this one. Both are extreme cases and neither would be acceptable for journalistic images, but for artistic use I find these examples very acceptable. Not all images can be "enhanced" in the way these examples have, but I am willing to attempt this type of "enhancement" on any image.

In the past I have teamed up with several artists such as Denis at Denis Digital (formerly Photopocus) to handle some of my portrait editing. Examples of work they have done for me can be seen here.

I have found it to be true that many of my low light images need more color correction than other images due to the way the camera processes the image information. If the images exhibit excessive noise (graininess) I will often add a bit of noise reduction to clean them up. This is either done using the Nikon NX program or through a program called Neat Image.

It is also worth noting, that all image processing is done on a color calibrated computer monitor to assure accuracy.



Post-processing of images has a never ending learning curve. I am always looking for new methods and techniques in an attempt to produce the best possible images. As you can see I spend a great amount of time on these images before they are posted here. That is why they are set to be viewed at "True Color." That means, the colors I intended them to be. If you wish to do a bit of image adjustment yourself, you can crop and edit images in "The Cart" once you place your order.
