Looking Your Best
A portrait shoot usually results in a single image of the highest quality for the purpose of being framed and mounted.
A single portrait image will be hand crafted in the digital darkroom to remove blemishes and imperfections, soften skin tones, adjust areas of brightness and contrast and numerous other adjustments to create a beautiful image to be proud of.
Before the shoot we would arrange a consultation to determine the type of image you wish to have created. The location can be indoors, at home or a place of work, or outdoors at a location of your choosing. Recommendations for suitable clothing and other finishing touches can be decided upon and tips given on posing.
At the portrait session, I would expect to shoot in the region of 30 to 50 photographs. With so many shots a high percentage will be very similar and only vary upon facial expression, the way your clothing and hair drapes. I will perform a first pass selection based on image quality and any obvious flaws such as an obtrusive passerby, eyes closed etc. Although I am willing to make suggestions I believe that the client should be the selector of their best image, so all the photographs that "make the cut" will be hosted in a private client area where you can review them and select the image I will take into the digital darkroom for finishing.
Once finalised your image will be delivered digitally via a dropbox and sized at over 4000 pixels longest edge, making it suitable for large-scale printing.
You will also receive a high-quality print of the finished image in any selected size up to A2 (42.0 x 59.4cm) on your choice of the best fine-art media available. Larger prints, mounting and framing can also be provided at additional cost.
