A few angles, laughs, light moves, background changes, changing of clothes and we have their images. Pretty much painless =)
Need any help finding or selling properties, look them up.
Here are a few from their session.
A father, a plumber by trade, and a fitness coach/trainer. As the images will show he ‘s very disciplined and loves what he does. More than that, the brief time I spent with him in studio and chatting via text it was easy to see that he’s just a great guy. I wish him nothing but the best in his up coming competitions.
DA Visions Photography has been listed on Thumbtack for a couple months. I see quite a bit of activity on it and from it. I guess it’s doing the job. It’s a web presence that steers potential clients to you and you have the opportunity to bid with quotes. These quotes cost me money. The issue I have is that anyone randomly can just enter a Google search playfully and not seriously looking for a wedding photographer. They fill out a short description of what they had in mind and Thumbtack sends it to me. I spend $$ to buy credits and send a quote. That’s it. The problem is most are just playful inquires or phishing for price ranges and have no real intentions of hiring anyone. Most are unrealistic expectations. Example, 8 hours of wedding coverage and they only expect to spend $200-$400. That means to me they are not serious at all. Another, wanted headshots but not until next year? Makes me chuckle. So what do I do, well, I still look through them but I only try and pick the ones I think are real. Problem is, they are few and far between. =)
Although I have never seen the movie, I do know all about the shades of grey =) #shadesofgrey
It is an important part of setting your tonal values for the image you would like to capture. Any “good” “professional” photographer will know this. Not only is it having the knowledge about tonal values and zones but also how your camera sees a scene and meters for it and what will you do with your camera to adjust it to set your zones where you want them. Setting it on “P” or any auto setting won’t cut it.
Wiki: The Zone System provides photographers with a systematic method of precisely defining the relationship between the way they visualize the photographic subject and the final results. Although it originated with black-and-white sheet film, the Zone System is also applicable to roll film, both black-and-white and color, negative and reversal, and to digital photography.
An expressive image involves the arrangement and rendering of various scene elements according to the photographer’s desire. Achieving the desired image involves image management (placement of the camera, choice of lens, and possibly the use of camera movements) and control of image values. The Zone System is concerned with control of image values, ensuring that light and dark values are rendered as desired. Anticipation of the final result before making the exposure is known as visualization. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zone_System
I recently put together this sample video showcasing the variety of headshots available with DA Visions Photography. Also, some behind the scene looks and video. Most headshots are done on premise. Advance booking is required. Being mainly a wedding and Bar Mitzvah photographer, a large studio is not warranted. In the case of headshots and portraits I do have a small working studio in my home. The benefit of not having a large overhead is passed onto the consumer with affordable pricing. But don’t be fooled, I have a plethora of modern equipment at my disposal. Please visit the “headshot” page for many more examples of different light scenarios and background looks. Visit the info/pricing page for current pricing. If I have light I will have shadows, with shadows I have depth, with you I have character. I don’t need much space for those ingredients
