Step 1 - Free Consultation
We'll discuss the location to be photographed, what images you would like, what you want your images to say about you, and the mood, clothing, and colors present. I will scout the location ahead of time to determine what kind of lighting we will be working with.
Step 2 - Photo Shoot
It is important for your group to communicate with each other to coordinate both the style and color of clothing worn for the shoot. The colors should look appealing with the background you have chosen and evoke the mood you want in your images.
Step 3 - Pre-processing
After the photo shoot I will sort through the images, selecting the best candidates for your project and apply some light edits to correct color and composition. This light editing gives you a better idea of how the final image will appear.
Step 4 - Review and Selection
You will be able to see proofs of your images after pre-processing and I will work with you to select the images which will work best for your project. Once we finalize the list of pictures, I will complete the retouching process.
Step 5 - Editing
My editing process includes touching up facial blemishes, whitening teeth and eyes, adjusting color balance, removing visual clutter, straightening sight lines and orientation, and matching product colors. The final image is produced in the highest available quality to allow reproduction as desired.
Step 6 - Final pictures
You will receive both a set of 4x6 prints and a thumb drive containing the retouched digital images you have selected. You will given a royalty-free non-transferable license to the pictures for your unlimited use, excluding reproduction for sale. I also offer to print your images for you at a professional lab at cost.
