J and A were up for any goofy idea I had -- so be warned -- when I get these images done you are gonna LOVE them! Heh. And they were AMAZING despite the fact that it was FREEZING outside and everyone's lips were chattering. Now that's dedication to a common goal! ::grin::
And how adorable is the nine year old? I lurve her. She was so much fun to get to smile...
C'mon. Admit it. It's a valid question. There are a meeelion photographers in this area and all over the place. Some cost a lot. Some cost virtually nothing.
Eventually every small business owner has to answer this question -- why would you trust me?
I've been doing a lot of thinking about this and here's what I've come up with...
3. Technical Skills.
And I don't want to make this a sales pitch. Really. I just wrote a lot of blah blah blah and deleted it because I think I can show you why you might consider working with me -- in two images...
Meet S. We had a fun and goofy time today today wandering around downtown Rochester finding places to take pictures where it wasn't blizzarding or freezing. She was AWESOME and willing to try any idea I had -- and I think the results will be so worth it...
Here's a sneak peek for the darling Ms. S -- more to follow!
and I love editing them.
Sometimes pumping up an image during editing takes it from good to interesting or from cool to WOW.
I LOVE this one -- the way the bride is framing the image -- but the couple in the background is exuding their own happiness. This image makes me smile every time I look at it.
I've been playing in Photoshop this morning (because what ELSE do I have to do today? ::wry grin::) and experimenting with a photograph that I love. It's interesting to me how a photograph can change dramatically even with tone and color. I was thinking it would be cool to have a photograph of someone you love that blended into it's surroundings...like this little girl. Imagine her in a blue themed room...I also love how the feeling of the image changes as the color and intensity change. I love color.
And I know you're feeling all concerned about it, right? ::smile::
Well, the truth of the matter is this: I love blogging -- I've blogged for over a year now in several different places -- and I started this one to (obviously) tune you into my photography business, entice you to look at my images, and eventually -- be so overwhelmed that you HAVE to let me take your photographs.
::grin:: How's that working out for you?
But what's missing from this blog -- what makes it essentially bland (in my opinion) is that there's nothing about ME really. Yes, yes I KNOW my photographs give you my point...
