Ch-, ch-, ch-, ch-, changes....

Within the past several months, I've changed a lot of the ways I've been conducting business and there've been some questions as to why. So I thought I'd give you all a bit of my reasoning and methods to my madness.

I've stopped providing "paper" proofs and instead have gone to "proofing" by projection. After my photo shoots, I come back to my office and edit the images shot. Then instead of spending money to print up extra images, I save them and put together a slide show of the images. This enables me to show my clients in much greater detail the images created. It also cuts down on images being illegally copied. Unfortunately, in today's world of technology, it's all too easy to scan and duplicate professional images. Projection viewing covers both battles with one technique. I'm able to project images to a large enough size to see all the little details, and prevent unlawful copying of my work.

That's just one of the aspects that I've changed. I'll be able to give more insight in the coming days and weeks.

Thank you to all my clients, past and present, for entrusting me to capture your precious moments! I appreciate your business and look forward to working with you again soon! And thank you for your understanding with my new policies. It's going to make Frameable Faces a much better operation!

A helpful photo tip

All too often people completley center the subject in their lens. Try focusing on the subject and then moving it off center, a bit to the right or to the left. It'll make for a much more interesting photograph! Try it! I bet you'll love it!!

Sneak a Peak at M's Bat Mitzvah!

I had the wonderful opportunity to share in this day with none other than Miss M. I had the BEST time photographing her, her family and friends. It was more like being a party guest than being the photographer documenting her special day. If all weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvah's were like this one, I'd do 2-3 per week! That's how much fun I had!!

After doing a beautiful job during the morning service, M. had a great party! Full of super creative things from a very cool "place card" 'table', to great table numbers, but I'd have to say my favorite was the custom painted bedroom door to have her friends sign as a reminder of the day! What an amazing array of ideas! And what a great group of people to deal with! I was whisked onto the dance floor by an uncle and kissed on the cheek by another! Wow!!!
Check out some of these images and then remember to keep checking for my new site which should be completed soon! I'll have some more images on the new site of M's day!
