Hence, there is need for expert skills in photo editing.
Facial glare removal
During hot summer and open daylight photoshoots, oily and sweaty skin reflect the sunlight; as a result, photos would look very disturbed.

A retailer might ask you to click his products for promoting it online. What will happen if the product is promoted directly without manipulation? It can lead to fewer customer attention and engagement due to the image not being customer-focused nor having a striking background.

Photo editing professional places your images on the best of the background, and also provide add-on techniques if required; (floating the product, adding shadows, different angles for the product) which drives higher customer attention on the product.
An individual who has braces in the teeth would feel uncomfortable in giving a perfect smile during any of the prime occasions. Further, an individual might be open as he/she may directly demand braces removal in the image post the clicks. Some of the customers restrain themselves and do not communicate even though they are in discomfort. As a photographer, you must determine the behavior of an individual and convey about the braces removal in the photo post the clicks. Thus, the customer is comfortable with a smile.
For example, a bride with the braces on her teeth might feel discomforted with her natural smile.
During overcast situations, images look underexposed and in excess brightness, images look overexposed.
